About Geneva Community Power
Geneva Community Power is a local renewable energy program serving residents and businesses in the New York Finger Lakes region. Those who enroll will save approximately 10% annually on electricity for up to 25 years by supporting clean energy generation. Once 400 subscribers enroll, Geneva will be awarded $25,000 for storm water control projects benefiting Seneca Lake. If the enrollment goal is met by June 26, the money can be used to apply for $75,000 in NY State matching funds, effectively quadrupling the project scope.
