Sustainable Westchester, Inc. (SW) is preparing to conduct a procurement for electricity supply for ESCOs for those communities in its opt-out municipal aggregation in the NYSEG service area.

Sustainable Westchester's current supply contracts for municipalities in NYSEG utility territory expire April 30, 2019. Westchester Power, SW's brand name for the aggregation, has begun the process of preparing its municipalities to participate in the solicitation for the supplier for the 2019 NYSEG territory contracts

Currently, there are 5 municipalities participating in the aggregation that fall within NYSEG territory. These municipalities are listed below:

• Town of Bedford

• Town of Lewisboro

• Town of North Salem

• Town of Pound Ridge

• Town of Somers

SW said that there is one additional municipality, the Town of Yorktown, that is eligible to join the NYSEG contract once they complete the requirements set forth in the PSC's community choice aggregation (CCA) framework order and receive PSC approval on their local authorization package.

SW said the 2019 contracts for the NYSEG service area will again have standard and renewable offerings. "The consensus of our membership is that we will migrate to NYS-qualified Renewable Energy Certificates ('RECs') for the renewable option," SW said

SW said that Westchester Power will solicit bids from qualified ESCOs in January 2019. SW will ask bidders to provide optional day/night time-of-use (TOU) rates in addition to the typical fixed rate offerings for residential and small commercial account holders. "TOU rates would not be required for qualifying bids, but a TOU option will be given some additional weighting in evaluation if it appears to offer some advantages to account holders who voluntarily shift their load to off-peak times," SW said

SW is to issue a Request for Information (RFI) to ESCOs on January 1, 2019

SW is to issue a formal Request for Proposals (RFP) to select ESCOs on January 30, 2019

The awarding of the contract is anticipated on February 13, 2019

Service under the new contract is to begin May 1, 2019

Separately, the Village of Dobbs Ferry has authorized joining the SW municipal aggregation. The Village of Dobbs Ferry is located in the Consolidated Edison service territory
