Somerville Community Choice Electricity

Somerville Community Choice Electricity (CCE) is the City’s program to provide competitively priced, stable and green electricity rates to Somerville residents and businesses.

New Supplier:

Somerville CCE is changing electricity suppliers, from Dynegy to Direct Energy. You will see a notice of this in your December Eversource bill. You do not need to take any action to remain in the program.

More Renewable Energy:

Somerville CCE’s standard rate, Somerville Local Green, will double its amount of extra new, local renewable energy, from 5% extra to 10% extra.

Lower Cost Standard Rate:

Somerville Local Green will cost XX% less than Eversource’s Basic Service supply for residential customers. Eversource rate is fixed from January-June 2020. Eversource rates not known beyond this period.

Somerville CCE is a municipal aggregation, or Community Electricity Aggregation, program operated by the City of Somerville. With Somerville CCE, Eversource continues to deliver electricity and manage all electricity billing. The only change is the source and cost of electricity supply, chosen by the City of Somerville through a competitive bidding process.
