Your options

New accounts in Sharon Power Choice will be automatically enrolled in the Sharon Power Choice Standard offering. You will receive an additional 20% of your electricity from clean, renewable sources like the sun and the wind, over and above the minimum amount required by state law, for a total of 42% renewable electricity from New England (MA Class I RECs). Two additional options are available by request:

  • If you want all of your electricity from clean, renewable sources (100% MA Class I RECs), choose the Sharon Power Choice Green option.
  • If you do not want any additional renewable electricity beyond the minimum amount required by state law, choose the Sharon Power Choice Basic option.

Electricity supplier: If you participate in Sharon Power Choice, you will see Constellation listed on your electricity bill as your electricity supplier. Learn more about how the program will appear on your Eversource or National Grid bill.

Electricity mix: The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires that all electricity supply products include a minimum of 59.2% from renewable energy resources in 2023, including 22% from “premium” renewable energy projects in the New England region (MA Class I RECs). Sharon Power Choice Basic meets this minimum requirement. Sharon Power Choice Standard and Green exceed this requirement.

* Program prices include a $0.001/kWh administrative fee and a $0.001/kWh operational fee to support Town energy staff. Program prices could increase as a result of a change in law that results in a direct, material increase in costs during the term of the electricity supply agreement.
** Sharon Power Choice Green includes the minimum amount of MA Class I RECs required by law each year plus the additional amount needed to reach 100%. Sharon’s electricity supplier must also purchase other renewable energy to meet state requirements. As a result, the total of the renewable amounts for Sharon Power Choice Green exceeds 100%.
