The Town of Millbury will be launching the Millbury Power Choice program for residents and businesses in July 2017. The primary goals of the program are to provide annual savings and rate stability for participating consumers. However, the program will also offer participants exciting renewable energy options from which to choose. The program was approved by the Board of Selectmen and the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities.
On January 27th, 2017, the Town of Millbury received the Department of Public Utilities (DPU) order approving the town’s aggregation program, Millbury Power Choice. Good Energy, the town’s aggregation consultant, then conducted a competitive bid for an electricity supplier in May 2017. Opt-out letters (shown above) detailing the program were sent to every eligible account in Millbury from early June/July 2017. Eligible accounts are defined as those currently on National Grid’s basic service and not in contract with a third party supplier. Additionally, any account holder that has previously asked National Grid NOT to have their information shared with marketers will be deemed ineligible. Any account that is not initially eligible will be able to join the program at a later time. The opt-out letter clearly compared National Grid rates and Millbury Power Choice rates, and also provided contact information for those having questions. This website will have information about the program along with contact information for anyone wishing to speak to a program representative. Finally, it should be emphasized that no one affiliated with the town’s aggregation program will be calling, going door-to-door, or sending mailers. The only communication will be the opt-out letter, which will be recognizable as coming from the Town of Millbury.
