In September of last year, the Town of New Baltimore renewed their Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program locking in rates for residents and small businesses for the next two years starting in December of 2022.
Central Hudson electricity supply rates fluctuate every month and had spiked several times last year. The Town wanted to ensure that residents and small businesses had a more stable fix price option.
Although the Town's Community rate increased from last year. It is still lower than the historical Central Hudson rates. Residents and small businesses were automatically enrolled in the program and had 30 days to opt-out in November.
However, if a resident chose to opt out from the program in the past, they would not be enrolled in the CCA program renewal. Newly eligible residents recently received letters from Central Hudson explaining they were enrolled in the program.
