|ROCKLAND COMMUNITY POWER COMMUNITY CHOICE AGGREGATION (CCA) ENERGY PROGRAM|
In the past few days most South Nyack residents & small businesses
have received letters from Orange & Rockland (O&R) announcing a
switch of their electricity supply to 100% renewable electricity through
“Constellation New Energy CCA”.
The O&R letter is a bit confusing but there is no need to be alarmed.
The Village of South Nyack is proud to be one of six Rockland County
municipalities that formed a collaboration, called the
Rockland Community Power program,
to buy affordable 100% renewable electricity on behalf of residents.
No action is required on your part – the switch to the
affordable 100% renewable electricity supply happens automatically &
should occur before the end of the month.
Note that if you are already subscribed to an alternative provider or
if you opted out of the Rockland Community Power program,
you should not have received the switch letter from O&R.
As part of the Rockland Community Power program, more than
36,000 households across the county are switching to this new
100% renewable New York State-sourced electricity supply.
The program offers strong consumer protections, a fixed rate,
no contracts, & will reduce the carbon footprint of residents &
small businesses by about 57,000 metric tons of CO2
over the next two years.
Important Note – It has come to the attention of Rockland Community Power that a number of customers who chose to opt-out of this program have received the letter from O&R notifying them in error that they are being switched to Constellation New Energy.
If you opted out, but then received a letter from O&R,
the letter is incorrect; you have not been moved into the Program
against your wishes. Your next O&R electric bill will reflect that
O&R is still making your month-to-month electricity supply decision.
Helpline: Should you have any questions or concerns contact the
Rockland Community Power helpline staff:
Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

The benefits of leaving leaves in place:
As in years past, the Village encourages residents to
mulch their leaves on site, to supplement curbside leaf pickup.
This climate Smart initiative involves composting leaves in place
rather than trucking them to a yard waste facility.
Two simple steps help keep the leaf nutrients in your gardens:
Spread leaves on garden beds and under shrubbery,
and, use a mulch mower to shred leaves on lawns.
Leaves left in place make a fine natural fertilizer,
are a natural soil builder, and act as a free, natural mulch.
Leaves also provide necessary habitat for the over-winter
pollinators such as bumblebees, butterflies and moths.
Keeping leaves in your garden reduces the carbon footprint of
collecting and transporting them to a yard waste facility.
Considering the many benefits of keeping leaves in place,
we hope you will join in this important initiative towards
becoming a more climate smart community.

Curbside leaf collection is going on now through
Friday, December 18th, weather permitting.
Place loose leaves in the gutter in a wind-row for pick-up by
the DPW vacuum. The leaves must be free of sticks, rocks & trash.
It is the homeowners responsibility to inform their
landscape contractor of Village requirements.
