Watertown Electricity Choice is a group electricity purchasing program from the City of Watertown for Watertown residents and businesses. Watertown Electricity Choice provides:

  • More renewable energy in your electricity supply
  • Stable electricity supply prices (though savings compared with Eversource’s prices cannot be guaranteed)
  • Consumer protections without high pressure or fees

The program is a City-vetted alternative to Eversource’s Basic Service and to other electricity offers in the marketplace.

One of the most affordable ways to reduce your carbon footprint

Watertown Electricity Choice offers three electricity choices that give you greater control over the environmental characteristics and price of your electricity supply, including two 100%-renewable-energy choices:

Enroll in Standard to receive 100% renewable energy. Or enroll in 100% Green to receive 100% renewable energy from new renewable resources in the New England region and help to build demand for renewable energy in our region and support the jobs that go with it.

How it works

A municipal electricity aggregation is a group electricity purchasing program. Participating in Watertown Electricity Choice will change your electricity supplier and the price Eversource uses to calculate the Supply charge on your electric bill, but participating will not replace Eversource as your electric utility. Learn more.

Savings cannot be guaranteed

Please note that, while Watertown Electricity Choice offers the potential for savings when compared with Eversource’s Basic Service price, there is no guarantee of savings. This is because Eversource’s prices change seasonally, and their future prices are unknown.

Protect yourself

If you receive mail about an electricity offer, read it carefully before signing anything. If you do not see:

1. the Watertown Electricity Choice name and logo and…
2. the Watertown City Seal

…the offer is NOT from the City of Watertown.  

Also, please remember, Eversource and the City of Watertown will never knock on your door or call you to talk about your electric bill. Eversource communicates in writing, and their correspondence always bears their logo. If someone calls claiming to be from Eversource, they are not. They are from a private company trying to get your business.
