Enroll in Newton Power Choice
Most new new electricity accounts in Newton will be AUTOMATICALLY enrolled in Newton Power Choice within a few months of opening, unless you opt out of the program. This automatic enrollment model is state law.
You will receive a notification letter in the mail from the City about the program prior to enrollment. The letter will include information about the program, options in the program, and prices, as well as information about how to opt out of the program if you do not wish to participate.
If your account is not currently enrolled and you wish to participate, please submit your enrollment information online or call customer support with the City’s program consultants at 1-833-272-9592.
If you have asked Eversource to place a block on your account to prevent enrollment with electricity suppliers, the block will prevent automatic enrollment, even if you receive the notification letter. To participate in Newton Power Choice, you must first ask Eversource to remove the block. Once the block has been removed, you may then request enrollment in Newton Power Choice.
If you sign a contract with an electricity supplier shortly after opening your electricity account, your account will not be automatically enrolled, and you will not receive a notification letter. However you may choose to enroll your account in Newton Power Choice by submitting your enrollment information online or by calling customer support with the City’s program consultants at 1-833-272-9592.
Please note: We recommend that you carefully check the terms and conditions of your supplier agreement. Your ability to terminate your agreement with your supplier may be restricted. If you decide to enroll, be sure your current electricity supplier knows that you wish to cancel your contract with them so they do not renew your relationship with them.
If you previously opted out and now wish to enroll, please note that you may not receive the Newton Power Choice price. The electricity supplier is entitled to charge you a market price for the remainder of the current electricity supply contract, but you would receive the Newton Power Choice price for any future electricity supply contracts.
