Joule Community principals were responsible for implementation of New York State’s first Community Choice program. Because the program rules vary from state to state Joule Community is the only organization with the expertise and relationships in New York to effectively manage a program, especially with the ambitious renewable energy goals that we share.

Moreover, Joule Community is the only company offering Community Choice administrative services in New York with an approved implementation plant that fully integrates local renewable energy projects. Their innovative approach is pushing the envelope for renewable energy strategies in New York and encouraging the Public Service Commission to advance these solutions more rapidly.
