Join us at Pittsford Sutherland High School auditorium at 6:00pm
Your opinion matters!  Please join us for our second public meeting on Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). Learn more about an alternative program to supply electric power for Pittsford residents.   The meeting will be held Thursday, June 21 at 6:00pm in the Pittsford Sutherland High School auditorium.
 
Supervisor Smith and the Pittsford Town Board have called this second public meeting on the subject of Community Choice Aggregation as an option for electric power for Pittsford residents, and have invited the Village Board.
 
A CCA program would affect every household. Therefore, we seek substantial public input before making a decision to proceed. The purpose of this meeting is to hear from you!
 
The meeting will begin with brief presentations by the Genesee/Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council and Power Management (energy consultant for the Town of Pittsford). These independent experts will review:

  • How CCA would work
  • Its pros and cons
  • How electricity from green sources is delivered to the home
  • What “green” means in a CCA program
  • Anticipated costs in relation to your entire energy bill

Rochester Gas & Electric will also discuss its green energy options
 
CCA allows local governments to source energy on behalf of its residents by designating a default energy provider, with a goal of aggregating buying power to offer residents greener energy options or cost savings or both. Under a CCA program, an electricity broker would negotiate on behalf of Pittsford residents to leverage our collective purchase power to obtain cheaper or greener electricity, or both. The selected provider would become the default electric power supplier. Households not wishing to make a change could opt out at no cost.
 
Please join us to learn more and to share your views!
