Example Eversource bill
Your Eversource electricity bill is calculated by adding two charges together:
- Delivery charge – The cost to deliver electricity to you, maintain the poles and wires, and address power outages.
- Supply charge – The cost of the electricity you use.
Maynard Power Choice will impact only the Supply charge portion of your Eversource electric bill. Eversource’s Delivery charge will not be impacted by your participation in Maynard Power Choice.
As a participant in Maynard Power Choice, you will know you are enrolled if you see the following two changes on your Eversource electric bill:
- Maynard’s electricity supplier will be listed on your bill as your electricity supplier.
- Eversource will use a Maynard Power Choice price to calculate the Supply charge on your electric bill instead of their own Basic Service price.
In addition, if you have Eversource’s Budget Billing, it will no longer apply to your Supply charge, though it will continue to apply to your Delivery charge.
Here’s what to look for on your Eversource bill:
Page 1 of your bill:
Your electricity supplier is listed on the first page of your bill.
If you are enrolled in Maynard Power Choice, Maynard’s electricity supplier will be listed as your electricity supplier, followed by their contact information. While we recommend contacting customer support with the Town’s consultants for help with the program, you may also contact Maynard’s electricity supplier directly if you wish.
Page 2 of your bill:
The price that is used to calculate your Supply charge (your electricity supply price) is on the second page of your bill.
Look below the Supplier header and find the row labeled Generation Srvc Chrg.
Look to the right to the math problem. This is the calculation for your electricity Supply charge.
- The first number is the amount of electricity you used in the previous billing cycle.
- The second number is your electricity supply price. That price will be a Maynard Power Choice price. The program will have three options (Maynard Standard, Maynard 100% Green, and Maynard Basic), and each option will have a different price.
