Enroll in Watertown Electricity Choice
|Enrollment in Watertown Electricity Choice will be AUTOMATIC for new electricity customers in Watertown. This automatic enrollment model is state law. If you will be automatically enrolled, no action is required.|
You will receive a notification letter in the mail from the City about the program prior to being automatically enrolled. The letter will include information about the program, options in the program, and prices, as well as information about how to opt out of the program if you do not wish to participate. The letter typically arrives within a few months of opening your electricity account.
…are not currently enrolled, and you wish to participate
Please submit your enrollment information online or call customer support with Watertown’s program consultants at 1-844-278-9864.
…have asked Eversource to place a block on your account to prevent enrollment with electricity suppliers
The block will prevent automatic enrollment, even if you receive the enrollment notification letter. To participate in Watertown Electricity Choice, you must first ask Eversource to remove the block. Once the block has been removed, you may then request enrollment in Watertown Electricity Choice. If you have received a letter about automatic enrollment and you were not enrolled because of a block, you will need to request enrollment after removing that block.
…sign a contract with an electricity supplier after opening your electricity account and before receiving an automatic enrollment notification letter
Your account will not be automatically enrolled, and you will not receive a notification letter. However you may choose to enroll your account in Watertown Electricity Choice by submitting your enrollment information online or by calling customer support with Watertown’s program consultants at 1-844-278-9864.
Please note: We recommend that you carefully check the terms and conditions of your electricity supplier agreement. Your ability to terminate your agreement with your electricity supplier may be restricted. If you decide to enroll, be sure your current electricity supplier knows that you wish to cancel your contract with them so they do not renew your relationship with them.
…previously opted out and now wish to enroll
You may re-enroll, but please note that you may not receive the Watertown Electricity Choice price. The electricity supplier is entitled to charge you a market price for the remainder of the current electricity supply contract, but you would receive a Watertown Electricity Choice price for any future electricity supply contracts. If the program’s electricity supplier decides to charge market pricing, you will be notified before enrollment and can decide then whether to continue with enrollment or not.
