About Geneva Community Power
The Town of Geneva and Joule Community Power have partnered to establish a community solar program that gives back to the community and enables subscribers who support clean energy generation to spend less on electricity.
Geneva Community Power is a local renewable energy program serving residents and businesses in the NY Finger Lakes region. Those who enroll save approximately 10% annually on electricity for up to 25 years by supporting clean energy generation.
Once an enrollment target is met, the program awards a $25,000 sustainability grant that Geneva elected to use for storm water control projects benefiting Seneca Lake. The money will be used to apply for $75,000 in NY State matching funds in order to finance Seneca Lake watershed projects valued at $100,000. The 400-subscriber enrollment target was met on June 26th.
The program is not just for Geneva residents. Any NYSEG residential and small business customer is eligible to enroll in Geneva Community Power to take advantage of electricity bill savings.
