In 2020, Joule Assets, via Joule Community Power, said that it launched three new municipal aggregation programs to more than 100,000 utility account holders in twelve communities across New York State.
This brings Joule's total to five municipal aggregations operating in 20 NY municipalities.
With new aggregations launching in 2021, Joule expects to serve 250,000 customers across 31 communities
Thus far, nineteen of the twenty municipalities with electricity supply contracts negotiated through Joule have selected 100% renewable energy
Additionally, by the end of 2020, Joule had enrolled more than 1,700 customers in community solar programs
During 2021, Joule expects to launch what it said would be the first opt-out community solar program in the United States in Brockport and Lima, NY. Joule said that it, "is the only program administrator with approval from the State to integrate community solar and electricity supply in a community choice offering." The Brockport and Lima opt-out community solar program is to be offered to 3,800+ households
By the end of 2021, Joule expects to launch four additional community choice aggregations in eight NY communities, including Rochester -- which Joule said would be the largest city in the State to move forward with municipal aggregation (with an expected 80,000 households)
