Enroll in Watertown Electricity Choice


Please note: Enrollment in Watertown Electricity Choice will be AUTOMATIC for most Watertown electricity customers. If you will be automatically enrolled, no action is required

If you have Eversource’s Basic Service, meaning you have not signed your own contract with an electricity supplier, your electricity account will be automatically enrolled in Watertown Electricity Choice with your September 2019 meter read. No action is required. This automatic enrollment model is state law. However, participation is not required, and you may opt out before being enrolled, or at any time after enrollment with no fee or penalty.

You will receive a letter in the mail from the Town in July with information about the program before enrollment occurs. The letter will include the Town seal, the Watertown Electricity Choice name, and Town Manager Michael Driscoll’s name at the bottom.

If you have signed your own contract with an electricity supplier, you will not automatically be enrolled in Watertown Electricity Choice, but you may enroll by calling Direct Energy at 1-866-968-8065 to enroll.

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 wish to wait until the end of your current electricity supply contract before enrolling in Watertown Electricity Choice, you may do so. You will receive the Watertown Electricity Choice price.
  • If you decide to change from your current supplier to Watertown Electricity Choice, be sure your current supplier has returned your electricity account to Eversource’s Basic Service before calling Direct Energy. Please be sure to clearly tell your electricity supplier to return you to Eversource’s Basic Service at the end of your contract and not to keep you enrolled past the end of your contract.
