Options & Pricing

All metered electricity accounts in Greenfield are eligible for program enrollment. Your options are as follows:

  1. For new Eversource electricity accounts, if you do nothing, you will be automatically enrolled in the Greenfield Light & Power program, which gives you 100% renewable energy. You will receive a notification letter prior to enrollment with information about the program and instructions for opting out if you do not wish to participate.
  2. For both new Eversource accounts and those accounts that are already enrolled in the program, you may opt out at any time. If you choose to opt out, you will remain on, or be switched back to, Eversource Basic Service.

Please note: With the 2018 contract, the program will have only a single offering, and the Greener Option will no longer be available. If your account was previously enrolled in the Greener Option under the 2017 contract with Public Power, your account will be transitioned to the Standard program offering with your January 2018 meter read.

Scroll down for pricing details for the program and for Eversource Basic Service.

These prices apply only to the electricity supply portion of your bill. Delivery charges are unaffected by the Greenfield Light & Power program.
