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.

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.
