Program Details

The City of Medford is pleased to announce the launch of the Medford Community Electricity Aggregation program for residents and businesses beginning in December 2019 and going through December 2022. The primary goals of the program are to provide a cost-effective, stable and responsible alternative to utility electricity rates for participating consumers. The program will also offer participants exciting renewable energy options from which to choose. Various public meetings are scheduled where the program will be discussed – please click here to view, or click on the News & Information tab above. The program was approved by the City Council and the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities. Program rates are show below.

Keep in mind that your Eversource or National Grid utility bills are divided into two sets of charges, one for supply and one for delivery. The Medford CEA program will only impact the supply portion of your bill. This is identified on your utility bill under Supply Services. The program does not affect the delivery or transmission portions of your bill which are substantial.

Disclaimer: A goal of the CEA program is to produce savings for customers, but savings cannot be guaranteed compared to your  utility’s basic service rate which changes every six months for Residential and Small Commercial customers, and every three months for Industrial 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.
