Local Community Based Energy Sources for Electricity

Lynn Ritchie, a member of the Co-op has generously given her time to research alternative local community based energy sources for electricity in our area. The resulting document includes explanations of the various types of choices, including one for low income residents, as well as some useful websites. Also included is a list with descriptions and website links to some available community suppliers in Central Hudson’s territory. Click here to see the report.
