Please note:

  • Prices for all options in the Acton Power Choice program include a $0.001/kWh administration fee. Program prices could increase as a result of a change in law that results in a direct, material increase in costs during the term of the electricity supply agreement. Program prices apply only to the electricity supply portion of your Eversource electric bill. Delivery charges on your Eversource electric bill are not affected by the Acton Power Choice program.
  • Acton Power Choice Green includes the minimum amount of MA Class I RECs required by law each year plus the additional amount needed to reach 100%. Acton’s electricity supplier must also purchase other renewable energy to meet state requirements. As a result, the total renewable content for Acton Power Choice Green exceeds 100%.
  • Some large commercial accounts may not be eligible for program pricing at the time of enrollment and may instead be offered market pricing. Visit the FAQ page for more information.
