Welcome!

Acton Power Choice is an electricity aggregation program, which is a group electricity purchasing program from the Town of Acton for residents and businesses. Acton Power Choice provides:

  • More renewable energy in your electricity supply
  • Stable, long-term electricity supply prices
  • Consumer protections without high pressure or fees

Savings compared with Eversource’s Basic Service are also possible, but they cannot be guaranteed because Eversource’s prices change and their future prices are not known. The program is a Town-vetted alternative to Eversource’s Basic Service and to other electricity supply offers in the marketplace.

10% Green in 2024!

This tracker represents the 399 (5%) Acton Power Choice subscribers who were enrolled in Acton Power Choice GREEN as of December 2023. To meet the goal of 10% GREEN in 2024, we need a total of 759 accounts enrolled in APC GREEN. Check back here for progress. Opt up to GREEN today!

By participating in Acton Power Choice Standard or Acton Power Choice GREEN, you will receive more renewable energy than the state-required minimum, reduce your personal carbon footprint, and help to reduce Acton’s carbon footprint as well. You will also help to drive the development of new renewable energy projects in the New England region by building a stronger market for the electricity generated by those projects.

How it works

Participating in Acton Power Choice will change your electricity supplier and the price Eversource uses to calculate the Supply charge on your electric bill, but participating will not replace Eversource as your electric utility or change the Delivery charges on your bill. How aggregation works.

Savings cannot be guaranteed

Please note, while Acton Power Choice offers the potential for savings when compared with Eversource’s Basic Service prices, there is no guarantee of savings. This is because Eversource’s prices change seasonally and future Eversource prices are unknown.

Protect yourself!

If you receive mail about an electricity offer, read it carefully before signing anything. If you do not see:

1. The Acton Power Choice name
2. The Acton Town Seal

…the offer is NOT from Acton Power Choice  

Also, please remember, Eversource will never knock on your door or call you to talk about your electric bill. Eversource communicates in writing, and their correspondence always bears their logo. If someone calls claiming to be from Eversource, they are not. They are from a private company trying to get your business.
