The Town of Canton is developing a plan for a consumer-friendly electricity program called Canton Electricity Choice. The program is an electricity aggregation, which is a kind of group electricity purchasing program that will allow the Town to use our collective buying power to increase the amount of renewable energy in our Town’s electricity supply.
Through the program, Canton residents and businesses will have new choices and greater control over the cost and environmental impact of the electricity they use. Though Canton Electricity Choice will not be able to guarantee savings, the Town is committed to working toward competitive and stable prices. In launching Canton Electricity Choice, Canton will join more than 150 other cities and towns in Massachusetts with similar programs.
The Town submitted its aggregation Plan to the DPU for review and approval in March 2023 and received approval in December 2023. Canton is targeting 2024 for program launch. Below are the approved aggregation documents:
