Program Details

IMPORTANT UPDATE:
We are pleased to announce that the Town of Charlton has renewed its Community Electricity Aggregation program. The program will be renewed with a new power supplier, NextEra Energy Services. The seamless transition of electricity supply to NextEra Energy Services will take place with your January 2020 meter reading and extend through December 2022 for a total of 35 months. The new rate with NextEra Energy Services will be 10.316 cents/kilowatt hour. This rate will remain fixed and not change during the 35-month period. Your February National Grid bill for January service will reflect this change.

No action is required to participate if you are already enrolled in the existing Charlton program. Please read the letter below that was sent on January 16th, 2020 to Charlton residents that are participating in the Community Electricity Aggregation program. The letter serves as a program update and also provides important information about program features and how to participate.

The Town of Charlton launched the Charlton Community Electricity Aggregation (CEA) program for residents and businesses in July 2017. The primary goals of the program are to provide a cost-effective, stable and responsible alternative to utility electricity rates for participating consumers. The program was approved by the Board of Selectmen and the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities.

Disclaimer: A goal of the aggregation program is to produce savings for customers, but savings cannot be guaranteed compared to the utility’s basic service rate which changes every six months for Residential and Small Commercial customers and every three months for Industrial customers. The aggregation program seeks to provide price stability and average savings over the full term of the program, but because future basic service rates are not known, there is no guarantee of savings.
