Newton Power Choice Program
The City of Newton is developing a plan for a new electricity program to be named Newton Power Choice. The program will provide an opportunity for Newton to significantly increase the amount of renewable energy in the community’s electricity supply. The program is a form of group purchasing known as an electricity aggregation, and it will impact nearly all electricity customers in Newton.
The program will allow the City to use the bulk buying power of the community to provide:
- Greener electricity
- Price stability
- Consumer protections
The program will provide a City-vetted alternative to commercial electricity supply offers you may receive by mail or over the phone.
New electricity choices
As a program participant, you will have new electricity choices. Newton Power Choice will give you greater control over the environmental characteristics and price of your electricity supply. You can choose to:
- Receive a standard amount of additional renewable energy, above the minimum amount required by state law.
- Opt up to 100% renewable electricity.
- Opt for renewable energy in an amount still to be determined.
- Opt down to receive no additional renewable energy but retain the program benefits of price stability and consumer protections.
Stay tuned for more details as the Newton Power Choice program is developed.
