In May of this year, the Town Manager signed a three year renewal, 2022 through 2024, with First Point Power to obtain electricity for the Town at a fixed rate of 11.134 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh). This is for all residential and business National Grid customers.
National Grid, which changes its rate twice a year, just released its Basic Service Rate for the period of November 1, 2020 through April 30, 2022. It is 14.821 cents per kilowatt hour for residential service, 13.113 cents/kWh for commercial customers, and 417.336 cent/kWh for industrial customers. So, our new rate will be a significant savings over the National Grid Basic Service Rate for this coming winter. The Town strongly urges any electricity customers in town who are not enrolled in the Town’s Community Choice program to do so before National Grid’s new Basic Service rate kicks in for the winter.
