Have your electricity bill handy so you can follow along!
Milton Community Electricity Aggregation is an electricity supply program operated by the Town of Milton. With Milton CEA, Eversource continues to deliver electricity, repair outages, and manage all electricity billing. The only change is the source and cost of electricity supply, which you can now choose, from your own local program.
Milton CEA has a standard product, Milton Green, which has more renewable energy certificates (MA Class I RECs) than required by the Commonwealth. Participants in the program receive Milton Green unless they affirmatively choose one of the other electricity products.
Includes 10% more Renewable Energy Certificates (MA Class I RECs), than required by the Commonwealth
Milton Green 100
Includes 100% more Renewable Energy Certificates (MA Class I RECs), than required by the Commonwealth
Meets Commonwealth renewable energy requirements
Products described as Green contain Renewable Energy Certificates (MA Class I RECs) above that required by the Commonwealth and come only from solar, wind, anaerobic digestion, and low-impact hydro located within New England.
All of the additional RECs included in the program are designated as Massachusetts Class I RECs and are the accepted legal instrument used to track renewable energy generation and to substantiate claims of renewable energy use. Learn more about the RECs that are included on the Renewable Energy page.
Program options will be available to all residents and businesses in Milton from September 2021 to the end of November 2024.
Future savings cannot be guaranteed.
Goals of Milton Community Electricity Aggregation
Competitive, Stable Price
Using strategic purchasing and the purchasing power of thousands of households and businesses in the program, Milton CEA will look to provide competitive, stable rates, although savings compared to Eversource cannot be guaranteed.
Support Renewable Energy Sources
Milton Green and Milton Green 100% products include more renewable electricity (in the form of MA Class I Renewable Energy Certificates) than required by the Commonwealth. This means you can support the growth of renewable energy generation in our region.
Increased Choice and
The program offers three different options for electricity supply so that everyone in Milton can find an option that fits their budget and climate goals.
Participants in Milton Community Electricity Aggregation may leave the program at any time without penalty.
Solar Electricity Consumers will continue to receive their net metering credits while participating in the program.
Budget Plan or Eligible Low-Income delivery rate consumers will continue to receive those benefits from the utility.
How to Participate in Milton CEA
At the end of June, the program sent a Customer Notification Letter to electricity customers who are eligible for automatic enrollment.
If you received the letter and you would like to participate at the Milton Green product level, no action is required – you will be automatically enrolled. If you prefer another product, use the Enroll/Change Product form to make a different choice.
If you received the letter and you prefer to leave the program before it starts, complete the Leaving Milton CEA form before July 28th.
If you do not receive the Customer Notification Letter, it’s likely that you had selected a different supplier (other than Eversource Basic Service – review your electricity bill’s Supplier field). You can join the program voluntarily, but you may be subject to penalties or fees from your current supplier if you leave before the term of your contract.
