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.

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.
