Municipal Aggregation

Residential and small business customers will benefit from lower electricity prices and an optional green energy program when their municipalities join our bundled electricity program.

Customers of National Grid and WMECO are paying for both Delivery Services (from the big power lines all the way to the actual home or commercial building), and Supply Services (which is the actual electricity itself). They are listed separately on the bill. In the Municipal Aggregation program, the Hampshire Council will arrange the Supply Services only, while National Grid and WMECO continue all of the Delivery Services. Customers have a legal right to opt-out of the program. All costs of the program are paid by the Hampshire Council; it has no impact on municipal budgets.

The program includes 36 communities, encompasses over 150,000 people and has the potential to save those customers up to $6 million annually if the collective price is $.01kWh under the current price.
