News & Information

Eversource winter rates announced – WinPower rates will be more than 17% lower for residential account holders!

WinPower promised savings when it first launched in July 2017. In 2018, our town community electricity aggregation program will not only achieve substantial savings over Eversource, but it will do so by including 5% more local renewable energy than what is required by state law. The average Winchester household can expect to save more than $100 between January and June 2018 with WinPower (see chart below). If you opted out of the program previously, now is the time to opt back in!

WinPower One Hundred (100% local renewable energy) only three percent more when compared to Eversource residential winter rate

If you’re not a WinPower 100 customer yet, you should be. Take a look at the WinPower Options below (or click here) and decide whether or not paying three percent more than Eversource is worth it for you to have WinPower 100, the option that provides you with 100% local renewable energy. Contact the WinPower program supplier, Dynegy, at (866) 220-5696 or sign up here and make the switch today!

Eversource rate of 12.888cents/kWh in effect February – June 2018
