Town of Rush
Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) Program
The Town of Rush is planning to join the Monroe Community Power renewable energy program. This community choice aggregation (CCA) program would enable the Town of Rush to provide residents and small businesses with the benefits of renewable electricity supply.
Formed in partnership with Joule Community Power, a division of Joule Assets, Inc., Monroe Community Power is a community choice aggregation (CCA) program that enables participating communities to pool local electricity demand in order to leverage the collective buying power of their residents and small businesses in an effort to secure more favorable terms on their energy supply, protect consumers, and choose renewable generation sources.
The Town of Rush is planning to join an upcoming bid for a CCA electricity supply rate for an expected program launch date in January 2023. If the Town of Rush selects an electric supplier, eligible residents and businesses will receive a letter in fall 2022 with information about the program, their choices and info about how to opt-out.
Public information sessions are scheduled for Wednesday, June 8th at the normal scheduled Town Board Meeting that will be both in-person and via Zoom; and Thursday, July 7th at 7 PM at an in-person session in the Town Pavilion. These sessions will provide general information, explain the benefits of participation by our residents and small businesses, and answer your questions.
