The City of Geneva is joining an upcoming bid to consider an electricity supply contract. An electricity supply contract through the Finger Lakes Community Choice (FLCC) program can provide eligible residents and small business with the benefits of renewable electricity supply.
Formed in partnership with Joule Community Power, a division of Joule Assets, Inc. (Joule), Finger Lakes Community Choice is a community choice aggregation (CCA) program that enables participating communities to pool local electricity demand in order to leverage the collective buying power of their residents and small businesses to secure more favorable terms on their electricity supply, protect consumers, and support renewable generation sources.
In spring 2023, the City will be presented with prices and the option to select between a fixed-rate or a variable-rate offer. Market conditions, including price volatility and the need to maximize the availability of renewable electricity supply may lead to the variable-rate offer providing the best value to residents and small businesses.
If the City selects a supplier and offering, all eligible residents and small businesses will be notified by letter in spring/summer 2023 of the details, their choices and how to opt-out. Participants can opt-out or opt back in to the program at any time with no penalty by phone or online form. By participating in the program, residents and small businesses can access competitively priced electricity supply with no individual contract.
Public information sessions will be scheduled over the next two months about the general program, how it can benefit residents and small businesses, and to answer your questions. Additional information sessions will occur in 2023 if the City signs a contract for CCA electricity supply.
