The Chair of the Massachusetts DPU issued a letter to retail energy suppliers and brokers requesting that they cease all door-to-door marketing activities, due to a, "significant increase in COVID-19's rate of transmission."
"Recently, there has been a significant increase in COVID-19's rate of transmission. To ensure
proper risk management and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we again request that you cease
all door-to-door marketing activity until the Department rescinds this request or the state of
emergency in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is lifted, whichever comes first," DPU Chair Matthew H. Nelson wrote in the letter
The DPU had previously requested that suppliers cease door-to-door marketing in March, but rescinded such request in August, "following a significant decrease in COVID-19's rate of transmission."
