Municipal Electricity Aggregation Program
The Town of Northborough is developing a consumer-friendly electricity program called Northborough Power Choice. The program is an electricity aggregation, which is a group electricity purchasing program for Northborough residents and businesses. Through Northborough Power Choice, the Town will use its collective buying power to lock in long-term electricity supply prices that will not change seasonally. While Northborough Power Choice will not be able to guarantee lower prices compared with National Grid’s Basic Service prices, the Town is committed to working toward providing prices that are competitive and stable.
When the program launches, electricity customers in Northborough will see a change in the price that is used to calculate the Supply Services portion of their National Grid electric bill, which is the part of the bill where we pay for the electricity we use. National Grid will continue to deliver electricity to Northborough and handle billing without interruption.
Public Comments Welcomed
Before launching the program, the Town must develop an Aggregation Plan and submit it to state regulators for review and approval. To ensure the public has an opportunity to be a part of developing this program, the Town is making its draft Aggregation Plan and associated documents available for review and comment before beginning that regulatory review process.
The draft Aggregation Plan for Northborough Power Choice will be available for public review and comment from February 12th until March 13, 2024. Northborough residents and business owners are encouraged to review the plan and submit written comments.
