Sudbury Community Electricity Aggregation (CEA) is a program offered by the town of Sudbury to provide new electricity supply options and more renewable energy to Sudbury residents and businesses.
The Program has been active since August 2017, and in August 2020, the Town changed electricity suppliers, to NextEra Energy Services. With Sudbury CEA, Eversource continues to deliver electricity and manage all electricity billing. The only change is the source and cost of electricity supply, chosen by the Town of Sudbury through a competitive bid process.
Sudbury CEA offers three choices for your electricity supply. The chart below describes these choices and compares them to current Basic Service electricity supply rates from Eversource.

The Sudbury CEA program seeks to provide price stability and average savings over the duration of the program, however, because future Basic Service rates are not known beyond the months shown in the table above, there is no guarantee of savings. Rates apply to service beginning and ending on the days of the month that your meter is read in your service area.
How to Participate in Sudbury CEA
Most residents and businesses in Sudbury already participate in the Sudbury CEA program. Check your electricity bill to see if you’re one of them: the Supplier should be listed as NextEra ENGYSV MA-Sudbury Agg. If Eversource is still listed as your supplier, you may complete the enrollment form to sign up for Sudbury CEA. If a different supplier is listed, contact that supplier to check for penalties or termination fees that they may charge before you join the Sudbury CEA program.
Participation in the Sudbury CEA program is voluntary: you can leave the program at any time without fee or penalty.
The program will periodically send Customer Notification letters to new or newly eligible electricity customers, which include program details, information about product prices, and renewable energy certificates. Customers who receive this letter and do not choose to opt out will be automatically enrolled. To enroll sooner, use our online forms.
