Electricity Aggregation -REMINDER

Public Announcement

Re-Posting of a Previously Posted Item from 2020

With the Eversource Basic Service Pricing about to drastically increase we would like to remind all residents of the option to participate in the Towns Electricity Aggregation Program which will be priced at 9.345 cents/Kwh through January of 2024 compare this to the Eversource Basic Service rate of 21.864 cents/Kwh beginning in January of 2023 and continuing through June 2023. The Aggregation rate offers a discount of 12.519 cents/Kwh! See Program information below:


The Town of Colrain is pleased to announce that Dynegy Energy Services (“Dynegy”) has been selected as the supplier for its Community Choice Power Supply Program (“Program”). Dynegy will provide electric power supply for all consumers currently on Basic Service in Colrain. This notice is intended to tell you about this Program for electric power supply. In accordance with state law, it also informs you of your rights and options if you choose not to participate in the Program.
YOU WILL NOT NOTICE ANY CHANGE IN YOUR ELECTRICITY SERVICE. The only difference you will see is that Dynegy will be printed under the “Supplier Services” section of your monthly bill (see sample below). You will continue to receive one bill from Eversource. You will continue to send your payments to Eversource for processing. Eversource will continue to respond to emergencies, read meters and maintain the distribution and transmission lines. Reliability and quality of service will remain the same. Furthermore, you will continue to have all existing consumer rights and protections.

Please see attached file for comparative rates and terms:

  • Basic Service rates change twice a year or more, depending on rate class. As a result, the aggregation rate may not always be lower than the Basic Service rate. The goal of the aggregation is to deliver savings over the life of the Program against Eversource Basic Service. However, such savings and future savings cannot be guaranteed.
