Important program news:

The Town of Lincoln has entered into a new, 12-month electricity supply contract with First Point Power for the Lincoln Green Energy Choice electricity program. The new contract will take effect in January when the current contract with First Point Power comes to an end.

While the current contract has kept program prices low in spite of the recent and rapid rise of electricity prices, Lincoln Green Energy Choice prices will move closer to market prices when the new electricity supply contract takes effect in January.

However, the new prices will be lower than Eversource’s winter Basic Service prices, which will also take effect in January.

Lincoln Green Energy Choice is an electricity aggregation program, which is a type of group electricity purchasing program for Lincoln residents and businesses from the Town of Lincoln.

Lincoln Green Energy Choice gives electricity customers in Lincoln a Town alternative to Eversource’s Basic Service and to other electricity supply offers in the marketplace.

Through the program, electricity customers in Lincoln receive cleaner electricity, and long-term, stable electricity supply prices (though savings compared with Eversource’s Basic Service prices cannot be guaranteed). The program first launched in early 2021.

Three clean-electricity choices

Lincoln Green Energy Choice offers three consumer-friendly electricity choices that give you more clean, renewable electricity from sources like the sun and the wind. Lincoln Standard Green is the default program offering. Beginning in January 2023, Standard will provide an additional 32% renewable electricity from New England, over and above the minimum amount required by state law, for a total of 54% clean, renewable electricity from New England (MA Class I RECs). You also have two additional choices:

  • Lincoln 100% Green, which provides 100% clean, renewable electricity from New England (100% MA Class I RECs).
  • Lincoln Basic, which provides an additional 2% renewable electricity from New England (MA Class I RECs), over and above the minimum amount required by state law, for a total of 24%.

How it works

A municipal electricity aggregation is a group electricity purchasing program. Participating in Lincoln Green Energy Choice program will change your electricity supplier and the price your utility uses to calculate the supply portion of your electricity bill, but participating will not replace Eversource as your electric utility.

Savings cannot be guaranteed

Please note that, while Lincoln Green Energy 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 Basic Service prices change every 6 months for residential and small business customers and every 3 months for large business customers, and future Basic Service prices are unknown.

Protect your Eversource 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.
