Massachusetts Community Electricity Aggregation

Mass CEA

UPDATE: As the result of a settlement of a contract dispute between the Town and Public Power, LLC, the electric supplier for the Community Electricity Aggregation Program, the price paid by participants in the Program for electric supply will increase from 10.122 cents per kWh to 10.430 cents per kWh effective with meter reads after September 15, 2018. This new price will remain fixed through the remainder of the term of the Electric Services Agreement which ends in January 2021. For more information about this, please check the notification letter.

In early 2016, the Town of Dartmouth joined 22 other communities to launch a community electricity aggregation (CEA) program designed to provide residents and businesses with competitive choice, long-term price stability, and reduced electricity rates. Also known as municipal electricity aggregation, the program relies on bulk-purchasing methods that generate economies of scale, resulting in reduced electricity supply costs for participating Eversource account holders.

The Community Electricity Aggregation Group is expected to provide residents and businesses savings over the base electricity supply rate provided by Eversource.

If you are a resident of the Town of Dartmouth and have Eversource as your utility provider, you should have been automatically enrolled in the Community Electricity Aggregation unless you opted out or have a supply contract with another electricity supplier.
