You benefit in three ways:
Savings: Natick has negotiated an electricity supply price on behalf of the Town with the goal of beating NSTAR's price, on average, over the course of the 24-month contract. At program launch on January 1, 2015, the program price beats NSTAR's price. Participants will begin to see savings as of their first meter read after launch. Because NSTAR's prices change frequently, there may be months when the program price is higher than the NSTAR price.
Predictability: Natick has negotiated a 24-month contract with ConEdison Solutions on your behalf, which means your electricity supply price will not change during that time. (NSTAR prices change every six months and can go up, down, or stay the same.)
Choice: In addition to giving you an alternative to NSTAR, the program also allows you to choose a 100% green energy option fir less than NSTAR Basic.
