Welcome to Newton Power Choice, an electricity program from the City of Newton for Newton residents and businesses. By participating in Newton Power Choice, Newton residents and businesses facilitate the development of renewable energy in New England. The program purchases a higher amount of renewable energy certificates than is required by state law, which helps to increase the demand for electricity generated from sources like solar and wind energy.
By default, Newton Power Choice purchases renewable energy certificates from renewable energy projects in New England that align with 82% of participants’ electricity use. This amount far exceeds the minimum amount required by state law, and it is the highest of any municipal aggregation program in the Commonwealth. The program also offers other options, which are available by request.
