Acton Power Choice

Welcome to Acton Power Choice, an electricity aggregation program from the Town of Acton for Acton residents and businesses.

Acton Power Choice increases the amount of renewable energy in your electricity and gives you:

  • a Town-vetted, transparent alternative to other electricity offers in the marketplace
  • electricity price stability with a fixed price until September 2022
  • a way to help reduce Acton’s greenhouse gas emissions
Beware of other offers! Many look like official Town communications. If you do not see the Town seal or the name Acton Power Choice, the offer is NOT from the Town or the Acton Power Choice program.

Please note: Because Eversource’s Basic Service prices change every 6 months for residential and small business customers and every 3 months for large business customers, and because future prices are not known, Acton Power Choice cannot guarantee savings compared with Eversource’s Basic Service price.

Program options

Acton Power Choice offers electricity choices that give you greater control over the environmental characteristics and price of your electricity supply. Participants will be automatically enrolled in Acton Power Choice Standard for 26% renewable electricity, but may choose Acton Power Choice Green for 100% renewable electricity or Acton Power Choice Basic for 16% renewable electricity, which is the state-required minimum:

About Acton Power Choice

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

Acton 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 Acton Power Choice price is used to calculate the supply charge portion of your Eversource electricity bill.  (Learn how aggregation works.)
