Welcome!

Acton Power Choice is an electricity aggregation program, which is a group electricity purchasing program from the Town of Acton for residents and businesses. Acton Power Choice provides:

  • More renewable energy in your electricity supply
  • Stable, long-term electricity supply prices
  • Consumer protections without high pressure or fees

The program is a Town-vetted alternative to Eversource’s Basic Service and to other electricity offers in the market place.

One of the most affordable ways to reduce your carbon footprint

Acton Power Choice offers three electricity choices, including two clean electricity choices (Acton Power Choice Standard and Acton Power Choice Green), that give you greater control over the environmental characteristics and price of your electricity supply:

By participating in Acton Power Choice Standard or Acton Power Choice Green, you will receive more renewable energy than the state-required minimum, reduce your personal carbon footprint, and help to reduce Acton’s carbon footprint as well. You will also help to drive the development of new renewable energy projects in New England by building a stronger market for the electricity generated by those projects.

Acton Power Choice GREEN and 100% renewable electricity:

How it works

Participating in Acton Power Choice will change your electricity supplier and the price Eversource uses to calculate the supply charge portion of your electricity bill, but participating will not replace Eversource as your electric utility or change the delivery charges on your bill. How aggregation works.

Savings cannot be guaranteed

Please note that, while Acton Power Choice offers the potential for savings when compared with Eversource’s Basic Service price, there is no guarantee of savings. This is because Eversource’s prices change every 6 months for residential and small business customers and every 3 months for large business customers, and future Eversource prices are unknown.

Protect yourself!

If you receive mail about an electricity offer, read it carefully before signing anything. If you do not see:

1. The Acton Power Choice name
2. The Acton Town seal, and
3. Town Manager John Mangiaratti’s name…

…the offer is NOT from Acton Power Choice  

Also, please remember, Eversource will never knock on your door or call you to talk about your electricity bill. Eversource communicates in writing, and their correspondence always bears their logo. If someone calls claiming to be from Eversource, they are not. They are from a private company trying to get your business.
