Program Features

Duration

The costs for all Stoneham CEA products are fixed for three years and will not change, from November 2020 through December 2023.

Renewable Energy

All Stoneham CEA products include the minimum percentage of renewable energy required by the state. Stoneham Local Green, Premium Local Green 50% and Premium Local Green 100% have extra renewable energy included, above and beyond state requirements. 
All extra renewable energy in the Stoneham CEA products qualifies as MA Class I renewable energy. The program sources its extra MA Class I renewable energy from the Green Energy Consumers Alliance. They help make our impact stronger and more local. Learn more about our extra renewable energy and the impact on the region here.
