Sustainable Westchester (SW) has issued an RFI for the electricity supply for the Consolidated Edison territory of its opt-out municipal aggregation (Westchester Power), and will issue an RFP at the beginning of September 2020
Currently, there are 23 Westchester Power participating municipalities in the Con Edison service territory. The aggregate usage in the current Con Edison communities over the one-year period from July 2019 to June
2020 is approximately 766 million kWh. Under the current contract, approximately 84% of the total Con Ed load is 100% renewable via NYS RECs.
The existing contract for the municipalities in the Con Edison utility territory will expire on December 31, 2020. Sustainable Westchester will issue an RFP for the follow-on contract, which will start January 1, 2021.
The forthcoming RFP will solicit for two product types, a standard grid supply that meets the NYS minimum renewable requirements for load serving entities, and a NY State qualified 100% renewable product. The Westchester Power program is based on fixed rates, and as such, Westchester Power will be requesting fixed rates that will include energy, transmission, capacity, transmission and distribution losses, RPS charges, imbalances, load factor adjustments, congestion charges, ancillary services, and applicable taxes. No pass-through will be allowed.
As previously reported, Westchester Power is also currently issuing an RFP for the NYSEG communities in its aggregation
