Options & Pricing

Your options are as follows. National Grid Basic Service prices are available below for comparison.

  • If you want the lowest-priced program offering and you do not want any additional renewable energy, choose the Standard Offering. The Standard Offering is the default program offering. All new National Grid Basic Service customers in Westborough will be automatically enrolled in the Standard Offering, unless they choose the Greener Option or opt out. 
  • If you want 100% green energy, choose the Greener Option.

NOTE: Savings cannot be guaranteed. The program price is fixed until November 2020 meter reads. National Grid Basic Service prices change twice a year or more, depending on rate class. There will likely be months when the program price is higher than the National Grid price. This is to be expected. The program goal is to beat the average of National Grid Basic Service prices over the entire electricity supply contract.
