What is the Massachusetts Community Electricity Aggregation Program?

Freetown Community Electricity Aggregation is an electricity supply program offered by the Town of Freetown to provide residents and businesses with new, Town-vetted options for electricity supply. Eversource continues to deliver your electricity, repair power outages, and maintain the electricity grid; they also send you one bill for the electricity you used.

On the Freetown Community Electricity Aggregation website www.MassCEA.com/Freetown, residents, business owners, and other electricity customers can

Learn how the program works;

See different electricity products;

Easily enroll in any of the program options or leave (opt-out) the program;

Read the aggregation plan;

See the benefits of supporting renewable energy generation.

Notices about the program:

Please keep in mind that future savings cannot be guaranteed because Eversource Basic Service rates change every six months for residential and commercial customers and every three months for industrial customers.

Newly eligible customers will receive a Customer Notification Letter detailing the program and ways to leave the program (opt out); those who choose not to opt out will be automatically enrolled.

Customers who have chosen a third-party supplier will not receive a Customer Notification Letter and will not be automatically enrolled. They can voluntarily join the program, but they may be subject to penalties or early termination fees from the third-party supplier if they switch to the electricity program during the term of their contract with their chosen supplier.

Want to Opt-Out?

Those who do not want to participate in Freetown CEA can opt out without penalty or change to a different program option at any time on the program website masscea.com/Freetown or by calling the supplier Constellation at 833-461-0813.

For more information about the program, go to masscea.com/Freetown.

Who Do I Contact?

For questions or concerns about the CEA program, or if you would like to opt-out of/leave the program, please visit masscea.com/Freetown or by calling the supplier, Constellation NewEnergy, at (833) 461-0813.

Please be advised that nobody in Town Hall or the Selectmen's office has the ability to opt residents into or out of this Community Electricity Aggregation program, nor do we have any information further about the program, other than what is available on this page. Your best point of contact is indeed MassCEA or Constellation NewEnergy, who should be contacted using the methods above.

More Information about MassCEA

Comprising nearly two dozen diverse cities and towns (Acushnet, Attleboro, Carver, Dartmouth, Dedham, Dighton, Douglas, Dracut, Fairhaven, Fall River, Freetown, Marion, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Northbridge, Norton, Plainville, Rehoboth, Seekonk, Somerset, Swansea, Westford, and Westport), this Community Electricity Aggregation buying group is the largest in Massachusetts and the third largest of its kind in the country.

Community Electricity Aggregation demonstrates the growing demand for the benefits of regional collaboration among communities on energy issues – a value the International City/County Management Association acknowledged recently in October when it recognized the program with a 2017 Local Government Excellence Award. 

As communities across the country have sought to take more control over their energy costs and usage, Community Electricity Aggregation has become increasingly popular. In Massachusetts, CEA is also known as “municipal aggregation” and was made possible by utility deregulation in the late 1990s. CEA is a process whereby a municipality or, in this case, multiple municipalities, aggregate the electrical load of residents and businesses within their jurisdictional boundaries to purchase electricity in bulk in the competitive market. 

The CEA program does not affect the delivery of electric service. Any problems with electric service, including outages, should continue to be reported to Eversource at 800-592-2000.

MassCEA, through it's energy consultant Good Energy, can be reached at 1-844-MASSCEA (844-627-7232).
