Electricity prices are rising this winter!
Participating in Newton Power Choice can protect you
On January 1, Eversource’s electricity supply price for residential customers will rise to a 14-year high of 15.764 ¢/kWh. This new price will be in place for 6 months, until June 30, 2022. Newton Power Choice can protect you from this price increase while investing in cleaner electricity.
By enrolling in the program, you remain an Eversource customer, but Eversource will calculate the supply charge portion of your electricity bill using a lower Newton price instead of their higher price.
Newton Power Choice offers 3 options, including two cleaner electricity options. Prices for all three options are lower than Eversource’s upcoming price.
Newton Power Choice options
- Standard – 13.452 ¢/kWh – Renewable electricity from New England will be purchased to match 82% of your electricity use
- 100% Green – 14.357 ¢/kWh – Renewable electricity from New England will be purchased to match 100% of your electricity use
- Basic – 10.646 ¢/kWh – No additional renewable electricity will be purchased above the minimum amount required by law
In addition to lower prices than Eversource, all three Newton options offer long-term price stability. While Eversource’s residential prices change every 6 months, Newton Power Choice prices will not change until January 2024.
Please note: Eversource’s prices will change in the future, and those future prices are not known. As a result, we cannot guarantee that Newton Power Choice will always be less expensive in the future.
