Good Energy recently sponsored NY REV Summit, the NY Governor's Energy plan that stands for Reforming the Energy Vision for New York.

Urbana Inks Residential Aggregation Deal with Electricity Supplier

Urbana residents should expect to see savings on their August energy bills. When the new 4.08 cents per kilowatt hour rate kicks in, residents will save about 35 percent on their energy supply costs, (distribution costs will not change). The residents will benefit from a two-year contract with Homefield Energy, a deal brokered by Good Energy. This low rate for electricity supply was made possible by aggregating most of Urbana's small business and residential electricity load and buying power as a group. In addition to the substantial cost savings made possible by the aggregation and Good Energy's careful selection of the most suitable electricity supplier for this contract, there is an environmental benefit to the contract as well. A purchase of renewable energy certificates offsetting 100% of the negative environmental attributes of the energy consumed over the course of this contract has been made, making Urbana on of the greenest communities anywhere.

Given these numbers, the race is on to find more efficient, cost-effective ways to procure and manage power. For the typical business or consumer, that’s no easy proposition. And the challenge is even more daunting for those who are really struggling financially – and the non-profits dedicated to making their lives a little easier.
