Program Details

Rockland Community Electricity Aggregation (CEA) is a program offered by Town of Rockland to provide residents and businesses with more options for electricity supply.  Rockland CEA does not replace National Grid, the electric utility in Rockland, which continues to deliver electricity, repair outages and handle all billing so customers continue to receive one bill from the utility.

Program renewed!

The Rockland CEA program has been renewed for another three years, through December 2024. More details will be coming soon. In the meantime, you can read the press release about the program renewal.

Rockland CEA is the only electricity program offered by our Town – beware of look-alike offers and always look for the Town seal on materials sent to you!

Program products

Rockland CEA has a standard product, called Local Green; participants in the program receive Local Green Standard unless they affirmatively choose the 100% renewable energy product called Rockland Premium 100% Local Green.

RECs are the accepted legal instrument used to track renewable energy generation and to substantiate claims of renewable energy use.

The additional renewable electricity qualifies for MA Class I designation and comes only from solar, wind, anaerobic digestion and low-impact hydro located within New England. Local refers to renewable energy resources located in New England.

Goals of Rockland Community Electricity Aggregation program

Competitive, Stable Price

Using strategic purchasing, combined with the bulk purchasing power of thousands of households and businesses in the program, Rockland CEA provides competitive, stable rates. Please note, savings compared to utility Basic Service cannot be guaranteed because Basic Service prices change every six months for residential and commercial customers and every three months for industrial customers.

Support Renewable Energy Sources

Rockland CEA’s standard and optional products include more Renewable Energy Certificates (MA Class I), than required by the Commonwealth. This means you can support the growth of renewable energy generation in our region. 

Increased Choice and Easy Participation

The program offers three different options for electricity supply so that everyone in Rockland can find an option that fits their budget and climate goals.

Participants in Rockland CEA may leave the program at any time without penalty.

Solar Electricity Consumers will continue to receive their net metering credits while participating in the program.

Budget Plan or Eligible Low-Income delivery rate consumers will continue to receive those benefits from the utility.

How it works

Most residents and businesses in Rockland already participate in the Rockland CEA program. Check your electricity bill to see if you’re one of them: the Supplier should be listed as Dynegy – Rockland. If National Grid is still listed as your supplier, you may complete the enrollment form to sign up for Rockland CEA. If a different supplier is listed, contact that supplier to check for penalties or termination fees that they may charge before you join the Rockland CEA program.

Participation in the Rockland CEA program is voluntary: you can leave the program at any time without fee or penalty.

The program will periodically send Customer Notification letters to new or newly eligible electricity customers, which includes the program details, information about product prices, and renewable energy certificates. Customers who receive this letter and do not choose to opt out will be automatically enrolled. To enroll sooner, use our online forms.
