Welcome to Lynbrook Community Energy
Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions about the Program
IMPORTANT ACCOUNT UPDATE
Due to a National Grid system error, account holders participating in the Lynbrook Community Energy program were not charged for their supply of natural gas in March. A corrected National Grid bill, including these omitted charges, will be sent in the coming weeks. The Village of Lynbrook maintains that the Program still offers value for participating natural gas account holders and greatly appreciates your patience as the utility works to correct the issue. Additional details are provided in the National Grid letters below.
The Incorporated Village of Lynbrook is pleased to announce the launch of Lynbrook Community Energy, a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program designed to provide potential annual savings and rate stability for participating residential and commercial consumers by fixing the transport, or basis portion, of their natural gas rate, such that the rate will not change during the course of the term. The Program will also offer participants an exciting eco-friendly option. Eligible customers will soon receive additional information in the mail regarding product features, including information about the renewable energy option.
Lynbrook Community Energy is an approved community choice aggregation program operated by the Incorporated Village of Lynbrook. With Lynbrook Community Energy, your utility continues to deliver your energy and manage your billing. The only change is the source and cost of your energy supply, chosen by the Village of Lynbrook through a competitive bidding process.
What is Community Choice Aggregation?
Lynbrook Community Energy is a community choice aggregation program operated by the Incorporated Village of Lynbrook. The Program pools the buying power of our residents and businesses into a large buying group, using that buying power to solicit natural gas at bulk pricing.
By default, your utility provides standard energy supply. With Lynbrook Community Energy, the energy supply will instead, be chosen by Lynbrook. Your utility will continue to deliver the energy that we, as a town, choose. Your utility will also continue to respond to power outages and manage all billing.
What are the goals of Lynbrook Community Energy?
Lynbrook Community Energy seeks to procure energy supply contracts when the market is favorable. Combined with the bulk buying power of thousands of households and businesses in the Program, Lynbrook Community Energy aims to produce potential savings for customers compared to basic utility rates.
Basis & Transport Price Stability
Your natural gas commodity cost will continue to fluctuate just like your utility rates. But Lynbrook Community Energy secured a fixed price for the Basis & transport fees of the supply portion of your natural gas costs.
Local Renewable Energy
Lynbrook Community Energy seeks to help support the growth of eco-friendly products and renewable energy in our region. You may be able to choose to opt up to an eco-friendly or renewable energy product option.
Participants in Lynbrook Community Energy may leave the Program at any time without penalty.
