How electricity aggregation works
Through Maynard Power Choice, Maynard will be able to determine the amount of renewable energy in the community’s electricity supply and secure an electricity supply price for the community. However, Maynard Power Choice will not replace Eversource as Maynard’s electric utility. If you choose to participate:
- Eversource will continue to deliver your electricity with no interruption, and you will continue to call Eversource if your power goes out.
- Eversource will continue to send your electric bill, and that is the only electric bill you will receive. But on your bill, Eversource will use a Maynard price to calculate your Supply charge.
- You will see no change to any discounts or credits that you receive from Eversource, such as a low-income discount. But if you have Budget Billing from Eversource, it will no longer apply to your Supply charge.
Enrollment will be automatic for most electricity customers in Maynard (though not for customers who have already signed a private electricity supply contract). If your account is eligible for automatic enrollment, you will receive a notification in the mail from the Town with details like pricing and program options before being enrolled. If you have a private electricity supply contract, you may choose to participate, and enrolling will be an easy process. However, you are encouraged to check with your current supplier before making any change as you may be subject to early termination fees.
|Participation is not required. The automatic enrollment model is state law for all municipal electricity programs like Maynard Power Choice, but you will be able to opt out before being enrolled and any time after enrollment with no penalty.
