Official letters from each community will be mailed to all households in early September. Please be aware that any letters that residents have received about energy contracts are not from the Rockland CCA program, which does not require any action to participate.  If you have any questions about something you have received or have been offered, call the Rockland Community Power phone hotline at (845) 859-9099, or email the Community Coordinator at peggy@rocklandcommunitypower.com, or visit RocklandCommunityPower.com.

Rockland Community Power is inviting residents and businesses in the villages, Clarkstown and Orangetown to enroll in their 100% renewable Community Solar program to save up to 10% annually on their electric bills. Community Solar is available to anyone with a residential or small business utility account. For every enrollment in this program, a $50 donation will be made to the Rockland Community Foundation which is providing relief through grants to combat COVID-19 challenges in Rockland County. Learn more at the Community Solar page at RocklandCommunityPower.com.

Free Mosquito Dunks

To help Rockland County residents reduce the number of mosquitoes on their property, free mosquito dunks will be offered to keep pools and outdoor spas mosquito free. Mosquito Dunks® are small, donut-shaped objects that float on the water’s surface and release bacteria that kill mosquitoes in their larval stage in water before they become flying, biting adults. They are for use in closed or unused private swimming pools and spas and are effective for approximately 30 days. A single dunk will treat an area of about 100 square feet.

Mosquito Dunks® will be available, free of charge, for curbside pickup at the Robert L. Yeager Health Complex, 50 Sanatorium Rd, Pomona. The giveaway takes place every Tuesday from 2-3p and every Friday from 10-11a until Oct 30, 2020, or while supplies last. Visit rocklandgov.com for additional information about the program.
