Community Choice Electricity
Some communities offer their own Class I green electricity options. These communities use third-party suppliers to provide residents with affordable, greener electricity choices. In some cases, Green Energy Consumers supplies the renewable energy!
Cost: Varies by community. Each community has different supply rates for electricity, and the rates that include 50% or 100% green electricity typically cost 2-4 cents more per kilowatt-hour you use.
In some communities, payments for RECs are charitable contributions and are federally tax-deductible.
Billing: The community's pricing appears on your regular Eversource electric bill.
You make one payment to Eversource. You can cancel anytime by contacting your community's supplier.
Renewable energy sources: Massachusetts Class I resources such as wind, solar, low-impact hydro, and anaerobic digester gas.
Who can participate: Residents of communities on the Sign Up list below.

Frequently Asked Questions about new Green Powered options
Why are you making me change my account? Eversource is making changes to its billing system that would necessitate costly changes on our end, too. And because Community Choice Electricity (CCE) programs across the state are growing and are also offering Class I green electricity options at affordable rates, our program is shrinking. We decided to switch to a new form of billing our customers that is less costly for us as more and more consumers join their CCE programs (a good thing!).
