Several companies are trying to trick residents into signing up for electricity from them. THIS IS A SCAM! The Village of Elmira Heights and our partners are NOT going door to door selling electricity, nor calling people at home. These companies are unscrupulous, and are misrepresenting their relationship to the village.
The Village partnered with MEGA (Municipal Electric and gas Alliance) on Community Choice Aggregations (CCA) and through a competitive selection process is offering electric supply from Constellation. If you receive a phone call, a door – to- door sale or an additional letter in the mail it is NOT the CCA Programs selected by the Village.
The Village and our partners worked together through the CCA Program to carefully select an option for you that is free from escalating prices, high termination fees and aggressive sales tactics. Please call the Village or MEGA at 518-533-5399 if you have any questions.
