Tax exempt accounts

Tax exempt accounts that wish to maintain their tax exempt status in the Swampscott Community Power program must submit tax exemption documentation to the program’s electricity supplier.

This means that tax exemption documentation must be submitted each time the program’s electricity supplier changes.

  • The previous electricity supplier for the Swampscott Community Power program was Agera Energy
  • The current electricity supplier for the Swampscott Community Power program is Direct Energy

The program’s electricity supplier is required by the State of Massachusetts to have valid tax exemption documentation on hand for all tax exempt accounts.

You may have submitted tax exemption documentation to National Grid already, but National Grid does not share this documentation with the program’s electricity supplier. It is the customer’s responsibility to submit this documentation.

Where to submit your documentation

Agera Energy

The previous electricity supplier for the Swampscott Community Power Program was Agera Energy. Tax-exempt organizations that were served by Agera Energy and have not submitted their tax exemption documentation must do so in order to avoid being billed for taxes:
