|Municipal Electricity Aggregation in Pittsfield|
|08:19AM / Thursday, June 01, 2023|
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Pittsfield reminds residents and business owners that they are eligible to sign up for a lower rate of electricity by joining the city's Municipal Aggregation Program.
Since the launch of this program in 2018 by Mayor Tyer's administration, residents have collectively saved approximately $8,390,000 and businesses have saved approximately $5,076,000 for a total savings of $13,466,000.
Dynegy Energy Services is the supplier of electricity as part of the Community Power Supply Program and offer a fixed rate of $.09603 per kWh for basic service. This rate is valid through January of 2024 and residents can opt in and opt out at any point, at no charge, during the term of the program.
The current supply rate of electricity provided by Eversource is $.21991 per kWh through June 30, 2023. Thereafter the rate will be $.14854 per kWh through December 31, 2023. Basic Service rates change twice a year or more, depending on rate class. The goal of the aggregation is to deliver savings over the life of the Program against Eversource Basic Service.
