Welcome!


Lincoln Green Energy Choice is an electricity aggregation program, which is a type of group electricity purchasing program for Lincoln residents and businesses from the Town of Lincoln. Lincoln Green Energy Choice gives electricity customers in Lincoln a Town alternative to Eversource’s Basic Service and to other electricity supply offers in the marketplace, cleaner electricity, and long-term, stable electricity supply prices (though savings compared with Eversource’s Basic Service prices cannot be guaranteed).

Lincoln electricity customers who have Eversource’s Basic Service were automatically enrolled in Lincoln Green Energy Choice with their March 2021 meter read and will see a Lincoln Green Energy Choice price on their April 2021 electricity bill. The automatic enrollment model is in accordance with state law.

Three clean-electricity choices

Lincoln Green Energy Choice offers three new consumer-friendly electricity choices that give you more clean, renewable electricity from sources like the sun and the wind. Lincoln Standard Green is the default program offering. It provides an additional 27% renewable electricity from New England, over and above the minimum amount required by state law, for a total of 45% clean, renewable electricity from New England (MA Class I RECs). You also have two additional choices:

  • Lincoln 100% Green, which provides 100% clean, renewable electricity from New England (100% MA Class I RECs). If you want to really reduce your carbon footprint, go here to choose this option.
  • Lincoln Basic, which provides an additional 2% renewable electricity from New England, over and above the minimum amount required by state law, for a total of 20%.

Participate

Participation in Lincoln Green Energy Choice is open to all metered electricity accounts in Lincoln. Electricity customers that have Eversource’s Basic Service were automatically enrolled in Lincoln Green Energy Choice with their March 2021 meter read, unless they chose to opt out. If you have placed a block on your electricity account or you have already signed an electricity supply contract, you will not be automatically enrolled. Learn more about participating.

Compare the cost

Compare program prices to Eversource’s current 6-month Basic Service price. Or use the online calculator to compare program prices with the most recent 12-month average and calculate the greenhouse gas impact of participating in the program.

How it works

A municipal electricity aggregation is a group electricity purchasing program. Participating in Lincoln Green Energy Choice program will change your electricity supplier and the price your utility uses to calculate the supply portion of your electricity bill, but participating will not replace Eversource as your electric utility.

Savings cannot be guaranteed

Please note that, while Lincoln Green Energy Choice offers the potential for savings when compared with Eversource’s Basic Service prices, there is no guarantee of savings. This is 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 future Basic Service prices are unknown.

Protect your Eversource account number

Eversource will never knock on your door or call you to talk about your electricity bill.
Only provide your electricity account number if you are ready to change your electricity supplier.
