Framingham Community Electricity
The City of Framingham is pleased to announce the Framingham Community Electricity program, a municipal electricity aggregation, which is a type of group electricity purchasing program for Framingham residents and businesses.
Through Framingham Community Electricity, the City will use its collective buying power to increase the amount of renewable electricity in the community’s electricity supply. The program will also provide new electricity choices, giving Framingham electricity customers greater control over the price and environmental impact of the electricity they use. Residents and businesses will also be able to determine whether they want to participate in the program altogether - there will be no penalty or fee to opt out of the program and residents and businesses may do so at any time. While Framingham Community Electricity will not be able to guarantee lower prices compared with Eversource’s Basic Service prices, the City is committed to working toward providing prices that are competitive and stable for the long term.
Once Framingham Community Electricity launches, Eversource will continue to deliver electricity to Framingham without interruption, and Framingham Community Electricity will not replace Eversource as the City’s electric utility. Rather, the program will be integrated into the Eversource bill, changing the price used to calculate the Supply charge from Eversource’s Basic Service price to a Framingham price.
