CCA Update

The electricity supplier for Hudson Valley Community Power’s CCA program, Columbia, is no longer permitted to provide electricity supply to customers in NY State. As of July 19, participants in the Cities of City of Beacon, and Poughkeepsie, New York the Towns of Clinton, Town of Marbletown & Community, Town of New Paltz, Town of Philipstown, Red Hook, NY and Saugerties New York, and the Villages of Village of Cold Spring and Village of New Paltz, are being returned to Central Hudson’s standard electricity supply service.

You will not see any interruption in your utility service. No action is required.

You will receive two bills for July:

- The first bill you will pay the CCA electricity supply rate. See CCA rates here:

- The second bill will be Central Hudson’s July rate, around $0.0617/kwh

CCA participants have collectively saved $8 million on their electricity supply costs over the last year  since the renewal of this program in July 2021. That’s $300-400 savings for the average household.

This program also significantly reduced the community’s carbon footprint and helped to advance NYS clean energy goals!

The New York State Department of Public Service has initiated an independent administrative investigation into the actions of Columbia and its officers, agents and employees.
