ATTENTION SUSTAINABLE WESTCHESTER "PARTICIPANTS": YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS UP FOR GRABS AFTER ALL

For all those concerned about their personal data, Sustainable Westchester, and much more, please take a moment to read an important Gazette letter from Croton United's Joel Gingold:

To the Editor,

A few months ago, when the Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) electricity program was announced, a number of people expressed their concerns to me over having their personal Con Ed account data provided to the village or to Sustainable Westchester (SW), the program manager.  I told them that there was no reason for this since the aggregated data for the whole community was all that was necessary for SW to obtain responsive bids.  But to make sure, I sent a note to the village board asking just this question.

Shortly thereafter, I received a response from none other than Mayor Leo Wiegman that stated, “You are right. We only need the aggregate usage data from ConEdison for the energy procurement bid process.  Later, at the end of the process, the account level information (how many kilowatt-hours used at the Wiegman or Gingold residence) will be shared only between ConEdison and the compliant bidder chosen by each city, town or village.  Neither the Village nor Sustainable Westchester will see that level of detail.”

Since Mr. Wiegman is not only the mayor of Croton, but also the executive director of SW, he should certainly know all the details of the program, so I felt confident in telling those concerned citizens not to worry, that their personal data would never go to the village or SW.
