Agera Energy and Cambridge work together

By way of Agera Energy, customers in Cambridge as well as businesses who are under the Eversource Basic Service should be expecting cleaner electricity once the Cambridge Community Electricity program takes off. In this program, Cambridge utilizes the community’s buying power to receive a more reasonable price with supplier services.

After there was bidding war, the City and Agera Energy brokered a deal for 18 months to use the City’s electricity. This program promises 25% more solar energy than what the state typically uses and will give customers and businesses electricity at a discount. The fixed price of the program stays from July 2017 on to January 2019 and Eversource Basic Service prices would be subject to change quite a bit. The program hopes to help customers and businesses save money as opposed to how Eversource Basic Service has their prices.

Businesses and homeowners in Cambridge using Eversource Basic Service are grandfathered in to the Cambridge Community Electricity Standard Green program. 25% more solar energy would be available and coming from renewable projects through Agera Energy.

Homeowners as well as businesses can be a part of 100% Green and receive 100% renewable energy throughout New England in collaboration with Agera Energy. Those who are part of the program only get a single bill from Eversource and Eversource will provide Cambridge electricity and handle power issues.
