Participating Communities


Communities in New York’s Hudson Valley have partnered with Joule Community Power to establish Hudson Valley Community Power in order to provide residents with renewable energy supply at a fixed and lower price than they currently pay for electricity.





Nexamp is our community solar partner for the current project, open to Central Hudson utility customers. Solar panels will be installed at two solar farms: Wappinger, NY and Rochester, NY.

Nexamp is making it possible for home energy users and small business owners to support local solar power while lowering their electricity bills. Nexamp is a leader in the community solar space, with shared solar farms across New York, Massachusetts, and Maryland.
