July 100% Renewable Electricity ESCO and Subscription Community Solar Updates from HeatSmart Tompkins volunteer Gerri Wiley:
1) You’ll see that Clean Choice Energy remains on July’s chart, even though it is still on my ‘probation list’. Why consider this company? Because TODAY, they still offer a 12 month fixed low price of 5.1 cents per kWh. Granted, we don’t know how long that price will hold. Also, note that their online price is 8.0 cents per kWh, so you’d want to nab the 5.1 cent price by calling them.
2) Very exciting news on the Energy Coop of America (ECA) front. Along with offering a variable, but reasonable residential rate, they can offer non-profit organizations a FIXED low rate for the same 100% renewable electricity product. So, listen carefully: If you are a board member of a library, municipality, museum, or church or simply wish to offer their board the opportunity for a fixed low rate on renewable electricity, please let me know!
3) We have a new Subscription Community Solar company offering 10% reduction from NYSEG’s supply and delivery price: Common Energy. Their current solar project is in Catlin, Chemung County and they welcome sign-ups.
