The Town of Westwood is planning to launch the Westwood Community Electricity Aggregation program for residents and businesses beginning in the Spring of 2020. 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. Development of the program was authorized at the May 2019 Town meeting. The first step in the implementation of the program is to create an Aggregation Plan, which needs to be approved by the Westwood Select Board and the Department of Public Utilities. The plan is currently available for review and comment.

Disclaimer: A goal of the CEA program is to produce savings for customers, but savings cannot be guaranteed compared to the 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.
