Welcome to the Webster PowerUp program, an electricity program from the Town for Webster residents and businesses.
The program is a Town-vetted alternative to National Grid’s Basic Service and to other electricity offers in the market place. Webster PowerUp is designed to provide price stability, consumer protections, and the potential for savings, though savings cannot be guaranteed.
Webster PowerUp is a form of group electricity purchasing known as an electricity aggregation. The Webster PowerUp price will be used to calculate the supply charge portion of your Eversource electricity bill. In an aggregation, the Town uses the bulk purchasing power of the community to secure the best electricity price possible. National Grid will continue to deliver your electricity, but a different company will supply it, and that company’s rate will be used to calculate the Supplier Services portion of your National Grid electricity bill.
Webster has signed a 21-month contract with First Point Power to supply electricity to Webster until November 2020.
New electricity choices
Webster PowerUp offers two choices:
- PowerUp Standard: This is the default program offering. All National Grid Basic Service customers will be automatically enrolled in PowerUp Standard unless they opt out. Like National Grid’s Basic Service, Power Choice Standard meets minimum state requirements for renewable electricity.
- PowerUp Green: This optional upgrade gives you 100% renewable energy, all from renewable energy projects in New England. You may choose this option by calling First Point Power at 1-888-875-1711 and requesting it.
How to participate
New in town? All new electricity accounts in Webster will be automatically enrolled in Webster PowerUp, in the PowerUp Standard offering, unless you opt out or choose PowerUp Green. The automatic enrollment model is state law. You will receive a letter in the mail with the Town Seal explaining the program and your right to opt out at any time.
Adding an electricity account? Your account will be automatically enrolled in the program, unless you opt out or choose PowerUp Green. You will also receive a letter in the mail with the Town Seal explaining the program and your right to opt out for that account.
Want to change from your current electricity supplier to Webster PowerUp? To enroll, please call the program’s electricity supplier, First Point Power, at 1-888-875-1711. However, we recommend that you carefully check the terms and conditions of your existing electricity supply agreement before joining to be sure you will not be charged an early termination fee.
NOTE: If you receive mail about an electricity offer, but you do not see the Webster PowerUp name, the Town seal, and the Town Administrator’s name, the mail is NOT from the Town program.
Participation in Webster PowerUp is not required.
You may opt out of the program before being enrolled and any time after enrollment with no fee or penalty.
