Municipal Utility

37 different towns and cities in New York State have municipal utilities and their customers pay between a third and a half of what the rest of the state pays.  It is inexplicable why Rochester is not one of these, particularly when we already have a municipal water authority that could be expanded to handle the administrative part of these tasks.

Cheaper electricity would attract business and manufacturing, providing needed jobs. Best of all, for many in Rochester this would mean a yearly savings of over $1000 in energy costs. To many this may seem like a fantasy but Fairport Village Electric already provides its customers with rates a third less. This is an idea that has waited too long and we only need the resolve to implement it.

Keeping inline with my economic philosophy of our money staying in our city, our current energy provider is owned by a Spanish corporation.  A municipal utility will keep our money in our city.
