New WinPower Rates Announced
January 2020 – December 2022
Disclaimer: A goal of the WinPower 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.
***DECEMBER 2019 UPDATE***
Eversource winter rates announced – the new WinPower rate for residential account holders, effective January 2020 through December 2022, will be more than 10% below Eversource’s winter rate beginning January 2020.
In July of 2017, WinPower, our town’s Community Choice Electricity program was launched. First and foremost, WinPower promised to provide price stability when compared to Eversource Basic Service rates. This resulted in an amazing 85% town participation rate. But WinPower also hoped to generate savings for residents.
In January 2020, the WinPower (default product) rate will be 1.25 cents/kWh, or 10% lower than Eversource’s Residential Basic Service rate. And WinPower now has 10% more local renewable energy. If you opted out of the program previously, now is the time to opt back in. Contact the WinPower program supplier, Dynegy, at (866) 220-5696 to make the switch, or enroll here.
