July 2020 Update
Sudbury CEA is changing electricity suppliers from the current supplier, Dynegy, to NextEra Energy Services. The change will take effect in August 2020 and will be indicated on your August 2020 Eversource bill. You do not need to take any action in order to remain in the program.
Our new contract will triple the amount of additional local New England-based renewable energy from 5% to 15% for our standard product, Sudbury Green.
Sudbury Green will also include 85% additional renewable energy from national wind resources, meaning a total of 100% renewable energy for the standard product.
Utility Bill Notification
The following is an illustration of the notification you should expect to receive in your August Eversource bill:
$2.1 Million in Savings
Since the program launched in August 2017, Sudbury CEA has delivered over $2.1 million in savings to our community compared to Eversource Basic Service supply. That’s an average of over $376 per participating household!
Future savings compared to Eversource Basic Service cannot be guaranteed because future Basic Service rate change every three months for Residential and Commercial customers and every three months for Industrial.
Supporting New Renewables in New England
Each year, Sudbury CEA purchases about 3,600 MWh of local New England-based renewable energy (MA Class I) above and beyond what is required by State law. This additional renewable energy equates to the annual output of one land-based wind turbine (1.5 MW). Looking ahead, with Sudbury CEA tripling the amount of local renewable energy, this will increase to three wind turbines! Participants that opt up to Sudbury Premium 100% Local Green can help us increase the impact even more!
Using Sudbury Premium 100% Local Green will make you a leader in supporting the growth of renewable energy in our region, costing the average Sudbury household $28 per month compared to the standard product (typical monthly bill uses less than 11,000 kWh).
Products described as Green contain renewable energy above that required by state law. The additional renewable energy qualifies for MA Class I designation. Local refers to geographic areas permitted under MA Class I designation, namely New England, New York and eastern Canada.
