Westford Power Options Program (POP) has been renewed

The Town’s Electric Aggregation Program has been renewed through November of 2025.  If you are a member of the Pop Silver or Pop Gold programs, you will need to select a new program or be automatically put back in National Grid Basic Service. If you are currently in the Pop Basic or Pop Green options you do not need to do anything to remain in the program you have chosen, however, if it is possible for you to enroll in Pop Gold at this time, we encourage you to do so. See the bottom of this notice for more information on the notable carbon and dollar savings impact of Westford POP.

To confirm if you are part of the Westford Pop Program, check your bill. The letter you receive will tell you what option you have selected.  If you are not in the program, you can sign up here or call Constellation at (833) 461-0813.

The Supply portion of your Bill should look like this:

The new rates, as of the December meter read, are as follows:

*Savings cannot be guaranteed compared to the utility’s Basic Service rate which changes every six months for residential and commercial customers, and every three months for industrial customers. The aggregation program seeks to provide price stability and average savings over the full term of the program, but because future basic service rates are not known, there is no guarantee of savings.

While the rates for all options are higher than the previous three years, they are lower than other electricity supply rates we are aware of in the marketplace, and unlike other rates, which may change as often as every 6 months, Westford Pop will remain the same for the next two years.  You may leave Westford Pop at any time without penalty.

Questions about the changes? Join a virtual info session hosted by Good Energy, the Town's Consultant to the program, on Oct 26, 2023 at 6 PM or Nov 9, 2023 at 2 PM

The links, and the enrollment form, are available on the program site: MassCEA.com/Westford

Climate Impact

The voluntary renewable energy content in the Program’s standard and optional products comes from projects that qualify as MA Class I renewables and makes a sizable impact on the Town’s carbon footprint. Since Westford Power Options Program’s launch in 2016, participants have cumulatively purchased 23,060 MWh of renewable energy. This equates to avoiding over 17,483,020 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions cumulatively. This past year of the program’s impact equated to avoiding 5,904,400 miles driven by average gasoline-powered passenger vehicles.

Over 8,300 accounts participate in the program, a vast majority of the Town’s residential, commercial, and industrial electricity users. Participants have collectively saved more than $13,800,000 since the program’s launch in 2016 (please note, future savings cannot be guaranteed). 

 If you have additional questions, call the Sustainability Coordinator at 978-399-2798.
