Dear village residents, we have joined 27 of our neighboring communities to participate in Sustainable Westchester’s Westchester Power (WP) program. The program has been providing residents and small businesses a clean electricity supply choice since 2016 and has mitigated over 830,000 tons of greenhouse gases. The program provides competitive fixed price electric supply and easy access to NY sourced sustainable, renewable energy.
The default supply for the Village of Tuckahoe will be the 100% renewable energy option, but the program also offers a standard supply option, which is a mix of fossil fuel and renewable energy. You can switch between supply options at any time.
In the next few days, you will be receiving a notification letter with all program details including instructions on opting out of the program. To stay in the program, you need take no action – you will be seamlessly enrolled in the program on your first meter read day starting March 1.
The program is very different from standard ESCO offerings – you are never locked in to your choice and you can change supply options, opt-out, or opt back into the program without any costs or penalties at any time. To do so, please visit www.sustainablewestchester.org/wp/tuckahoe or call their offices at 914-242-4725.
Tuckahoe has been considering joining 27 of its neighboring municipalities in Sustainable Westchester’s community energy program, known as Westchester Power. This program would help Tuckahoe transition to a clean energy future by increasing the ease, accessibility, and affordability of 100% renewable energy for residents and small businesses in our village.
Representatives from Sustainable Westchester have been reaching out to our community for the past year and had held another info session yesterday for the village residents. Earlier this month (11/9/20), they had presented a detailed plan to our village board.
For those who had missed out, here is the link to that presentation.

Now that spring is here we are going to see a lot of bees on the honey run. We, at TESC, love our bees and want to educate our community about the benefits of bees. Please watch Erin, our own amateur beekeeper, talk about the wonderful creature. And feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
On April 2nd 2020, Yeager Room of the Bronxville Library, 201 Pondfield Road, 7 p.m. Nick Guntli of the New York Horticultural Society will discuss, “Green Gardening Practices and Why They Matter.” This event is free and open to all. It is sponsored by the Bronxville Green Committee, the Boulder Ledge Garden Club, the Working Gardeners of Bronxville, and the Bronxville Beautification Council.
Beginning March 1st, 2020 retail stores will no longer provide, single-use plastic bags. Please get in the habit of bringing your own reusable bags when you go shopping.
People often wonder what bag should they use. The right answer is – any bag that you can reuse is fine. Does not matter whether it is plastic, paper, or canvas bag as long as you reuse them over and over again.
