About Newton Power Choice

Newton Power Choice is a City-vetted alternative to Eversource’s Basic Service and to other electricity offers in the market place. Newton Power Choice is increasing the amount of renewable energy in the City’s electricity supply, while providing price stability, consumer protections, and the potential for savings, though savings cannot be guaranteed.

Newton Power Choice is a form of group electricity purchasing known as an electricity aggregation. More than 140 communities in Massachusetts are already engaged in electricity aggregation. When you participate, the Newton Power Choice price is used to calculate the supply charge portion of your Eversource electricity bill. (Learn how aggregation works.)
