Westborough Power Choice is a Town electricity aggregation program, which is a kind of group electricity buying program.

The program gives Westborough residents and businesses an alternative to National Grid’s Basic Service and other electricity supply offers in the marketplace without high pressure or fees. The program changes the price that is used to calculate the Supply Services portion of each participant’s electric bill.

Through the program, electricity customers in Westborough receive more renewable electricity, long-term stable prices, consumer protections, and the potential for savings, though savings cannot be guaranteed. The additional renewable electricity added by Westborough comes through the purchase of renewable energy certificates (RECs) from Massachusetts Class I-eligible systems.

New electricity accounts in Westborough will be eligible for automatic enrollment in accordance with State law and will receive a letter in the mail from the Town prior to enrollment.

Cleaner electricity and consumer-friendly choices

As a new participant in Westborough Power Choice, you will be automatically enrolled in the Standard Plan and receive a minimum of 42% of your electricity from new renewable resources in the New England region. You also have two additional choices: the 100% Green Plan for 100% renewable electricity, and the Budget Plan for only the minimum amount of renewable electricity required by state law.

Savings cannot be guaranteed

National Grid will never knock on your door or call you to talk about your electricity bill.
