We began Northern Power & Light in order to provide electricity from our family’s small hydro business directly to our friends and neighbors through New York's Community Renewables program, and we've been growing ever since.
How it works
What does it mean to get electricity from a local renewable power producer?
Similar to having a share in a farm, each month you get a portion of the harvest.
During months of peak power production - Spring for hydro, Summer for solar - your local producer will accommodate most, if not all of your needs.
In the off-season, when output is lower, you'll still enjoy the same reliable service through the utility.

TWO BILLS, NO CHANGE IN TOTAL COST
“Supporting local businesses and preserving existing renewable energy sources in the region… will help build a more resilient electric grid and local economy”

Sustainability Coordinator, Paul Smith's College
Directly support renewable energy and local businesses at the same time.
Transparency when it comes to where and how the electricity you're buying is being made
The Power of Local
Local electricity means a more resilient, independent, and efficient grid system for our community
Two Bills Are Better Than One
As a Northern Power & Light customer, your monthly electric expense will remain exactly the same, but it will be split into two bills.
You'll receive your Northern Power & Light bill for local power, and you'll continue to receive a bill from National Grid for the balance of your energy needs.
Two bills means you know exactly where your dollar is going, and with our secure auto-pay option, it's an easy way to support renewable energy, made here.
“We are very excited to work with Northern Power & Light and be able to offer local electricity directly to local residents”
