The Town of Canton is pleased to announce the launch of Canton Electricity Choice, a group electricity buying program from the Town that gives residents and businesses more choice and control over the electricity they buy.

Canton joins nearly 170 other Massachusetts communities that have this type of electricity program, including Milton, Sharon and Walpole.

Through Canton Electricity Choice and the collective buying power of the community, Canton electricity customers will get more of their electricity from renewable sources for a price that is lower than Eversource’s current residential Basic Service price, though future savings compared with Eversource cannot be guaranteed. Canton received state regulatory approval for the program in December 2023, and the program will launch in June 2024.

An informational table will be available at Canton Heritage Festival on May 18 from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM.

Most Canton electricity customers will be eligible for automatic enrollment! If you receive a notice in the mail from the Town, no action is required. You will automatically receive the Canton Standard Green price beginning in June. Canton customers with a private electricity supply contract are not eligible for automatic enrollment and will not receive the notice, but requesting enrollment is easy. Learn more.

Compare the cost

How it works

Canton Electricity Choice is a group electricity purchasing program. Participating in Canton Electricity 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.

Savings cannot be guaranteed

Please note that, while Canton Electricity Choice will offer the potential for savings when compared with Eversource’s Basic Service price, there is no guarantee of savings. This is because Eversource’s fixed Basic Service prices change every 6 months for residential and small business customers and every 3 months for large business customers and future Eversource prices are not known.

Protect your electricity account number

Eversource will never knock on your door or call you to talk about your electricity bill.
Only provide your electricity account number if you are ready to change your electricity supplier.
