Program Details

The Town of Stoneham will be launching the Stoneham Community Electric Aggregation program for residents and businesses in March of 2019. The primary goals of the program are to provide competitive choice, longer-term price stability and more renewable energy options to participating consumers. The program was approved by the Board of Selectmen and the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities.
 

Below is a chart comparing the rates for the Stoneham Community Electricity Aggregation program to Eversource’s winter 2019 rates. 

Please note that the program began with participating account holder’s March 2019 meter reading. The new program rate will be reflected on April’s bill for March service from Eversource.

Residential and Small Business & Lighting rates change every six months. Large Business rates change every three months.

Disclaimer: A goal of the CEA program is to produce savings for customers, but savings cannot be guaranteed compared to the utility’s basic service rate which changes every three months for industrial customers and every six months for residential and small commercial customers. The Aggregation program seeks to provide price stability and average savings over the full term of the program, but because future basic service rates are not known, there is no guarantee of savings.

All eligible account holders will receive the notification letter (currently being re-designed – please check back soon) in the mail. The letter is the ONLY authorized mailing from the Town of Stoneham regarding the Stoneham CEA program. No action is required in order to enroll in the program.
