Earlier this year, the Village of South Nyack began a partnership with five other Rockland communities to create Rockland Community Power to increase our access to cheap, 100% renewable electricity.
As of December 2020, 24,000 households in Rockland County have been switched to the new 100% renewable supply without the hassle of contracts or penalties through Rockland Community Power’s first program, Community Choice Aggregation, (CCA).
We are excited to share a second, fully vetted renewable energy opportunity available through Rockland Community Power: Community Solar. Both programs work well together to save you money & support renewable energy in New York State. We encourage you to participate in both programs.
The Community Solar Program allows our residents (renters and owners) and small businesses to:
- Access the benefits of solar without needing to install solar panels on your rooftop or property
- Save up to 10% annually on their electricity costs
- Support the development of clean, renewable electricity in New York State
- Cancel without penalty or risk at any time
The Rockland Community Power Community Solar Program generates electricity from the sun in dedicated solar farms that are being constructed in our region. Since each solar farm can generate only so much power, we encourage residents to enroll soon before the solar farms become fully subscribed.
For every enrollment in this community solar program, $50 will be donated to a South Nyack Sustainability Fund. Each $50 donation is made by Joule Community Power which administers Rockland Community Power on behalf of the partnering municipalities.
Enrolling in community solar is a way to take action from home, to reduce electricity bills AND to help support our community & our environment. Please note that if you have your own solar panels, you already receive solar credits & are not eligible to enroll.
