How the WinPower Program Works
- All eligible Winchester Eversource ratepayers began receiving a notification letter detailing the program in June 2017. Letters included a mail-in opt-out letter.
- Eversource Basic ratepayers were automatically enrolled 30 days after notification unless they chose to opt out of the program in advance.
- Once enrolled, Winchester residents may leave the program with no penalty at any time. They will automatically be returned to Eversource Basic Service supply unless you have specified another electricity supplier that you wish to switch to. Please be sure to check all contract details and the stability of rates of a third party supplier before switching. WinPower will not change its rate without notifying all participating residents.
- If you were not an Eversource Basic Service customer at the time the program launched, you may opt into the program at any time by calling Dynegy at (866) 220-5696. Please check with your current supplier to see if you are in a contract that has a penalty for switching.
- If you are not already participating in the WinPower program, you can use the secure online form (here) to enroll in one of the WinPower options. Please note that new accounts in Winchester will be automatically enrolled every few months.You can speed up this process by filling out the enrollment form yourself.
- You may opt up to WinPower 100, or conversely opt to WinPower at any time.
