    Beacon is making great strides toward sustainability. In addition to a solar farm coming online this summer, its Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program is getting closer to launch. CCA programs empower municipalities by allowing them, rather than the state, to select the default energy supply for residents and small businesses. This provides consumers and businesses with greater control over energy bills and choices. CCA can facilitate cost savings, price stability and renewable energy development, among other benefits.

    Beacon is one of the flagship communities in this program, along with our neighbors in Fishkill, Cold Spring and Philipstown. I am proud of the work done by our city to support this forward-thinking approach. It’s easy for residents to take part, and you can learn more at the two forums.
