Community Choice Aggregation Public Outreach Meetings

The Villages of Nyack, South Nyack and Upper Nyack are joining a “Community Choice Aggregation” (CCA) Program to lower costs and bring 100% renewable electricity to residents and small businesses. By pooling demand along with the Towns of Orangetown and Clarkstown, this new CCA program uses economies of scale to negotiate a supply contract on behalf of residents. Come and chat with the CCA program representatives to find out more about how the seamless move to cheaper, 100% renewable energy will benefit the villages and reduce our carbon footprint at the following informational meetings:

  • Mon, Nov 18, 7-8:30p, The Nyack Library, 59 S Broadway, Nyack
