Welcome!

Westborough Power Choice is a Town electricity aggregation program that gives Westborough residents and businesses a Town-vetted alternative to National Grid’s Basic Service and other electricity supply offers in the marketplace, consumer protections, and the potential for savings (though savings cannot be guaranteed), while also helping to support Westborough’s sustainability efforts.

Cleaner electricity and new choices coming in November

Beginning in November, Westborough will buy an additional 20% of its electricity from renewable sources like the sun and the wind, in addition to the minimum amount required by state law. In addition, prices will change, and a new Budget plan will be available. These changes are the result of a new electricity supply contract with Dynegy, which will take effect as the current contract with Public Power ends. Active participants do not need to take any action to participate in the new contract in November. Read the complete announcement from Westborough

The amount of renewable electricity in the Standard plan will increase by 2% per year and reach a peak of 42% in 2023.

 

Available today

If you enroll today, you may choose between the two existing options in Westborough Power Choice. Both options offer transparent pricing, no hidden fees, and the ability to leave the program at any time.

Standard – 16% renewable electricity – 9.318 ¢/kWh

Receive the minimum amount of renewable electricity required by Massachusetts law (16% in 2020). As a new participant in Westborough Power Choice, you will be automatically enrolled in the Standard offering unless you request the Greener Option. The price is fixed until your November 2020 meter read and will then change to the new contract pricing.

Greener Option – 100% renewable electricity – 10.004 ¢/kWh

Receive 100% renewable electricity. The Greener Option is available only by request. You may request the Greener option when you enroll online or via customer support. The price is fixed until your November 2020 meter read and will then change the new contract pricing.

NOTE: If you enroll now in either Standard or the Greener Option, you will be automatically enrolled in the corresponding plan in the new electricity supply contract. If you wish to enroll in the Budget plan, please contact customer support.

How it works

A municipal electricity aggregation is a group electricity purchasing program. Participating in Westborough Power Choice will change your electricity supplier and the price National Grid uses to calculate the supplier services portion of your electricity bill, but participating will not replace National Grid as your electric utility. Learn more.

Savings cannot be guaranteed

Please note that, while Westborough Power Choice offers the potential for savings when compared with National Grid’s Basic Service price, there is no guarantee of savings. This is because National Grid’s prices change every 6 months for residential and small business customers and every 3 months for large business customers and future National Grid prices are unknown.

Protect your National Grid account number

National Grid will never knock on your door or call you to talk about your electricity bill.
Only provide your National Grid account number if you are ready to change your electricity supplier.
