MEDIA ALERT: First Victor Clean Energy Choices Information Meeting is Today

Village of Victor, New York, Wednesday, September 18, 2019.

A public information meeting about new clean energy choices available to residents and small businesses in the Village of Victor will be held today at 6:30 pm at the Victor Farmington Library, 15 W Main Street.
The meeting is rooted in a decision made by the Victor Village Trustees to participate in Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). With CCA, the buying power of the many Village residents and small businesses will be used to seek the purchase of 100% renewable electricity at a cost less than the average electricity default supply costs during the previous 12 months.  
After passing a local law in March of this year to authorize Community Choice Aggregation, the Village entered into an agreement in July with Joule Assets, Inc to administer the program. Joule, and its Rochester-based partner, Roctricity, have designed a program that offers two Clean Electricity opportunities for Victor residents and small businesses. The first is CCA, as explained above, which is an opt out program, and the second is a community solar program that is an opt-in program. 
Sue Hughes-Smith, a principal in Roctricity, will be explaining the details and answering questions about the two-pronged clean energy program this evening. Village Mayor Gary Hadden and other Village Trustees will also be in attendance.
Another public information meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday, September 25th, 2019 at 6:30 PM at the Victor Farmington Library, 15 W Main St., Victor, NY.
