The Town of Wayland is pleased to announce the May 2024 launch of Wayland Electricity Choice, a group electricity buying program from the Town for residents and businesses.

Participants in Wayland Electricity Choice get more electricity from renewable sources for a price that is lower than Eversource’s current residential Basic Service price (though future savings cannot be guaranteed). In addition, the program provides 24 months of electricity price stability, which means protection from winter electricity price spikes.

Wayland Electricity Choice changes the price that Eversource uses to calculate the Supply portion of our electric bill, which is the part of the bill where we pay for the electricity we use. But Eversource remains our electric utility and continues delivering our electricity, sending our bills, and addressing power outages.

With the program’s launch, Wayland joins more than 170 other Massachusetts communities that already have similar active programs.

How it works

Wayland Electricity Choice is a group electricity purchasing program. Participating in Wayland 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.

Make sure you’re enrolled

If you are enrolled, Wayland Electricity Choice will be integrated into your existing Eversource electric bill beginning in June 2024. Your supplier will appear as WaylandElectricityChoice-FirstPoint.

Savings cannot be guaranteed

Please note that, while Wayland Electricity Choice prices are currently lower than Eversource’s Basic Service prices, there is no guarantee of future savings. This is because Eversource’s prices change, and future Eversource prices are unknown.

Protect your Eversource account number

Eversource will never knock on your door or call you to talk about your electricity bill.
Only provide your electricity account number if you are ready to change your electricity supplier.
