Joule Community Power

Today’s polluted, expensive and inefficient energy markets make apparent a critical need to shift towards cleaner, cheaper locally-sourced energy. Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) is a policy tool designed to facilitate this transition.  CCA enables municipalities to select the source of electricity supply on behalf of its residents and small businesses,  leveraging their aggregated buying power at sufficient scale to negotiate better terms.

JouleCommunity Power administers CCA programs. The Joule team was responsible for the only live CCA program in NY, the Westchester Power pilot, which has saved residents more than $12 MM since inception in 2016 and is responsible for the largest purchase of clean energy in NY State history. In March, Joule was uniquely authorized by the New York Public Service Commission to include locally-sourced renewable energy with guaranteed savings. JouleCommunity is now in the process of implementing CCAs in Rochester and the Hudson Valley. 
Meet JouleCommunity representatives at the Renewable Energy & Sustainable Living Fair on October 20th to learn how you can help create a CCA for your municipality, or reach out to Charlotte Binns Cbinns (at)
