The Village of Irvington is participating in an exciting new venture, Westchester Smart Power, to help our residents save money on their electric bills and to use more renewable resources. As you probably know, for nearly 20 years, New York electric customers have had the ability to choose their electric suppliers. However, understanding the marketplace for electric supply can be quite confusing, so, in fact, only about one-quarter of our residents have actually made that choice. A full 75% of our residents have remained with Con Edison as their “default” electric supplier at a price that can fluctuate significantly.
Just recently, the Board of Trustees joined with 19 other communities in Westchester to select a two-year, fixed-price contract for renewable energy for a majority of our village customers.
