Six Rockland municipalities – Clarkstown, Orangetown, and the Villages of Haverstraw, Nyack, South Nyack, and Upper Nyack – have founded a collaborative municipal energy program called Rockland Community Power. This program will make 100% renewable energy available to our community at lower cost, while also strengthening consumer protection.
In the midst of the pandemic and economic hard times, it’s good to have some ‘good news’ to share with our communities.
- We have created a program that makes renewable energy affordable to everyone.
- We project that together we will reduce our collective carbon footprint for all six communities by approximately 57,578 metric tons over two years. That’s the equivalent of taking 12,439 cars off the road for one year.
- Together we are providing much stronger consumer protection through the program. By negotiating as a collaborative group, we are able to provide low fixed rates and help constituents avoid predatory contracts.

Program launch: Residents who did not opt out by October 28 will be moved into the program in November. Anyone can leave the program any time with no exit fee, but it will now take one billing cycle to move back to Orange & Rockland.
‘Switch letters’ from O&R in November: If you received a letter about the program from the village and did not opt out, you can expect to receive a ‘switch letter’ from Orange & Rockland over the next few weeks. The ‘switch letter’ notifies you that you are being switched to Rockland Community Power. We hope that you will take advantage of this village program.
