The City of Boston has filed with the Massachusetts DPU a final consumer notification form concerning its opt-out municipal electricity aggregation which has a start date of February 2021
The standard (default) rate for Boston's aggregation is $0.11409 per kWh for the period February 2021 to November 2021 for all customer classes. The standard product includes 10% MA Class I RECs above minimum state requirements
An optional "basic" product (no green content beyond state mandates) is priced at $0.10959 per kWh for the period February 2021 to November 2021 for all customer classes
An optional 100% green product is priced at $0.14764 per kWh for all customer classes for the period February 2021 to November 2021 (100% MA Class I RECs achieved by purchasing 82% additional RECs above the state’s then-current requirement for these renewables).
The opt-out form notes that, "Rate may increase as a result of a change in law that results in a direct, material increase in costs during the term of the contract."
The rates listed above include: Consultant Fee of $0.0007 per kWh to facilitate Boston’s Community Choice Electricity Program and (2) Operational Adder of $0.00008 per kWh to fund personnel costs associated with the City’s Energy Manager position.
Boston has selected Constellation NewEnergy, Inc. to serve its opt-out municipal electricity aggregation
