Example National Grid bill
Your National Grid electricity bill is calculated by adding two charges together:
- Delivery Services charge – The cost to deliver electricity to you, maintain the poles and wires, and address power outages.
- Supply Services charge – The cost of the electricity you use.
The list of Delivery Services charges appears on the first page of your bill and it is the first set of charges you see. Delivery Services charges are not impacted by your participation in Foxborough Power Forward. These charges are regulated.
To find Foxborough Power Forward on your bill, move past the Delivery Services charges and look for the Supply Services charge.
The second part of your bill is Supply Services. It typically appears on the bottom of the first page or at the top of the second page of your bill. The Supply Services charge is impacted by your participation in Foxborough Power Forward. As a participant in Foxborough Power Forward, you will see two changes on the Supply Services portion of your National Grid electricity bill:
- Foxborough’s electricity supplier, Direct Energy, will be listed on your bill as your electricity supplier. Look for the text DIRECT ENERGY (FOXBOROUGH POWER FORWARD).
- National Grid will use a Foxborough Power Forward price to calculate the Supply Services charge on your electricity bill instead of their own Basic Service price.
- To find your supply price, look below the supplier information and find the row labeled Electricity Supply. Look to the right to the math problem in parentheses. This is the calculation for your electricity supply charge.
- The first number is your electricity supply price. That price will reflect which program option you are enrolled in. Foxborough Power Forward has two options, and each option has a different price. The graphic below shows you the price you will see for each option.
- The second number is the amount of electricity you used in the previous billing cycle. Electricity use is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh).
