A READER HAS QUESTIONS ABOUT SUSTAINABLE WESTCHESTER, CCA ETC., CROTON UNITED WOULD LIKE TO HELP

A reader writes: I'm away until September and want to thank this site for keeping me so well informed about Sustainable Westchester and the Community Choice Aggregation program. Having been with one of these programs before, I want no part of another now. Please keep me informed of the opt-out information the moment you have it. I also heard that the mayor is no longer with this company? True?

Editor's response: As soon as that information is available, rest assured it will be posted. To our knowledge, the mayor is still the executive director of Sustainable Westchester as of this date.

In the meantime, you may have an interest in Croton United's post on this issue:

Understanding the Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) Program
July 27, 2015 at 12:29pm 

The following is one example of Croton United’s commitment to keep the residents of Croton informed as to what their government is doing. We believe that you are entitled to all available information on any and all of the programs under consideration by your village board. To receive more updates, please  'LIKE'  the Croton United  Facebook page.

The Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program, sponsored by Sustainable Westchester, is moving rapidly ahead.  It is projected to be in operation by this fall.  Under this program, all Croton residents who are ConEd electric customers will be automatically transferred to an Energy Service Company (ESCO), selected through competitive bidding by Sustainable Westchester, unless the individual customer opts out of the program. The ESCO will then provide power to all participating customers. The objective is to realize savings over the rates charged by ConEd.

The Village of Croton has elected to participate in the program, but has not provided much information on how the program works and what level of savings might be achieved.  As a public service, we have prepared the following information to assist you in understanding how you might be affected. 

At present, Croton United has not taken a position either for or against the CCA. That cannot be done until the details of the specific program applicable to Croton are made available, after an ESCO has been chosen.

  3. What this article leaves out is that Con Edison will be providing all your current account information-name address,usage ,billing maybe even whatever other personal information they have from your account-(bank account info,SS#) over to the company called Sustainable Westchester-all this personal information will be held by Sustainable Westchester so they can start billing you unless you opt out but they will already have your full account&personal information.Who gave Con Ed or Sustainable Westchester the right to freely pass on your priveledged information? What is Sustainable Westchester's security policy to protect your information from hackers? Who is Sustainable Westechester ? What is their track record ?-Go to their web site and search FAQ's on Community Choice Aggregation-read question #23 regarding secuirty and read the flip answer given !Something is not right here !
