Options & Pricing
Your options are as follows:
- If you do nothing, you will be automatically enrolled in PowerChoice Standard, which offers the lowest price within the program. Like National Grid Basic Service, PowerChoice Standard meets state minimum requirements for renewable energy. The majority of the electricity in PowerChoice Standard comes from traditional energy sources such as natural gas, coal, and nuclear.
- If you want 100% green energy, you may choose PowerChoice Green for a small premium.
- If you do not want to participate and you choose to opt out, you will remain on National Grid Basic Service.
- If you would like to leave your current electricity supplier and participate in Nantucket PowerChoice, please call Agera Energy at 1-855-973-2788.
Program prices are in effect from March 2017 meter reads – May 2018 meter reads (the original 12-month contract has been extended by 2 months). These prices apply only to the electricity supply portion of your bill. Delivery charges are unaffected by the Nantucket PowerChoice program.
