Options & Pricing

Swampscott Community Power offers three alternatives to National Grid’s Basic Service. The default program offering is Standard Green, which includes 100% renewable electricity primarily from renewable energy projects outside of New England. As a new participant in Swampscott Community Power, you will be enrolled in Standard Green unless you choose one of the other options.

Electricity supplier: Swampscott’s electricity supplier is Direct Energy. On your National Grid bill, beginning with your December 2021 bill, your supplier will be listed as NextEra Energy Srvcs MA-Swampscott Comm Pwr. See an example National Grid electricity bill.

Electricity mix: The program’s electricity supplier is required to provide an energy mix disclosure label that offers details about all of the sources of electricity provided. Visit the Resources page to download the most recent label.
