Welcome to the Town of Penfield’s
Community Choice Aggregation Program
An official letter (see below), sent on behalf of the Town of Penfield by Constellation NewEnergy, the supplier for the Program, was sent to eligible RG&E account holders in early November. These letters provide important details about the program and should NOT be considered a solicitation or junk mail.
The Town of Penfield is pleased to announce the launch of Penfield CCA, a community choice aggregation (CCA) program designed to provide competitive choice, annual savings, long-term rate stability and more renewable energy options for participating residential and commercial consumers by providing a fixed electricity supply rate, such that the supply rate will not change during the course of the term. In October 2021, eligible customers will receive important information in the mail regarding product features and benefits, including information about the 100% renewable energy option.
Penfield CCA is a Town-authorized community choice aggregation program operated by the Town of Penfield and administered by Good Energy. With Penfield CCA, your utility continues to deliver your energy and manage your billing. The only change is the source and cost of your energy supply which was chosen by the Town of Penfield through a competitive bidding process.
Welcome to Penfield CCA
What is Community Choice Aggregation?
Penfield CCA pools the buying power of our residents and businesses into a large buying group, using that purchasing power to solicit electricity supply at bulk pricing.
By default, your utility provides the standard energy supply. With Penfield CCA, the energy supply will instead, be chosen by Penfield. Your utility will continue to deliver the energy that, as a town, we select. Your utility will also continue to respond to power outages and manage all billing.
What are the goals of Penfield CCA?
Penfield CCA seeks to procure energy supply contracts when the market is favorable. Combined with the bulk-buying power of thousands of households and businesses in the Town, Penfield CCA aims to produce savings for customers compared to basic utility rates.
Penfield CCA secures a fixed price for the supply of energy over the contract term. In contrast, utility rates change every month for residential and small commercial customers.
Local Renewable Energy
Penfield CCA aspires to help support the growth of renewable energy in our region. In that effort, you may opt up to Penfield 100, the renewable energy product option that contains 100% renewable energy. Click here to learn more or to opt up.
Participants in Penfield CCA may leave the program at any time without penalty.
