The Economic Innovation Group located in Washington, DC has just introduced a new, nationwide program to spur long term private sector investment in low income communities, such as ours.
This program encourages investors to reinvest unrealized capital gains into distressed communities through "Opportunity Funds" that will be focused on approved "Opportunity Zones". These funds are an incentive to the investors and contractors, and will require no funds from the community or Village.
Montour Falls meets the requirements but must compete to be nominated as an Opportunity Zone. We need YOU to follow the link below and fill out the information supporting our nomination. These nominations are due by Friday, March 23, 2018! The time is short, so do it today!
The form is short and should only take a few minutes. We appreciate your help!!

NOTE: In the form it asks for what "Region" we are in, you must select "Southern Tier".
MEGA CCA Residential Electricity Program
The Village of Montour Falls is working with MEGA to explore a new program called Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). You and your neighbors increase your individual buying power through a group purchase of electricity.
As a participant in MEGA’s CCA you may:
-save money on your electric bill
-avoid sudden spikes in the price of your electricity
-stop energy telemarketers and door-to-door sales
-get access to renewable ‘green’ energy
Even after our community joins MEGA’s CCA you have the choice to opt-out and stay with the utility for electric supply. There are also opportunities for customers to opt-in to the CCA Program.
While we do not know the exact price for electricity through the CCA, we will know the price before we must decide if we will continue our participation in the CCA Program (see MEGA’s CCA 101 for details).
How does CCA work? To learn more please visit megacca.org and join us at a public education session at the Silver Spoon Café (entrance located on the north side of the Human Services Complex – 323 Owego Street) on Thursday, May 11th 6:30-8:00 pm (drop-in when it works for you), take a look at ‘MEGA’s CCA 101’ or review the FAQs.
Questions can be directed to MEGA’s CCA team at megaCCAteam@energynext.com or 518.533.5399.
If you have questions specific to the Village of Montour Falls you should contact Clerk-Treasurer Alyssa Hammond, our CCA Liaison, at email@example.com or 607.535.7367.
