How it works
Chelsea Electricity Choice will not replace Eversource as your electricity utility. Eversource will continue to deliver your electricity and send your electricity bill, and you will continue to call Eversource if your power goes out.
However, Eversource will no longer buy, or supply, your electricity. Instead, the City of Chelsea will use the group buying power of the community to purchase cleaner electricity from a competitive electricity supplier. When Eversource calculates the supply charge portion of your electricity bill (about half of your bill), they will use the Chelsea Electricity Choice price instead of their own Basic Service price.
Most electricity accounts will be automatically enrolled. The automatic enrollment model is in accordance with state law. But participation is not required. You can prevent enrollment from happening, and if you are enrolled, you can leave the program at any time with no fee.
