Electricity Products

The program has different products to let you find the right balance of cost and renewable electricity. Renewable electricity will be certified by purchasing and retiring Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), the accepted legal instrument used to track renewable energy generation and to substantiate claims of renewable energy use. Learn more about RECs.

Renewable Energy: Meets Renewable Energy Certificate requirements in Massachusetts

Please note: Prices for all products in the Rockland CEA program include a $0.001/kWh administration fee. Program prices could increase as a result of a change in law that results in a direct, material increase in costs during the term of the electricity supply agreement. Program prices apply only to the electricity supply portion of your National Grid electric bill. Delivery charges on your National Grid electric bill are not affected by the Gloucester CEA program. 

Products described as Green contain renewable electricity above that required by the Commonwealth. 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 New England.

For new Industrial customers and for those customers who have previously opted-out of the program, the Program’s supplier may offer a market rate.
