Electric Supplier Options in Massachusetts

What is a Competitive or Third-Party Supplier?

Your Eversource bill is broken into two main charges: supply and delivery. You can take control of your energy bill by exploring different rates offered by other electric suppliers.

Delivery: The cost for us to bring energy to your home and maintain a safe and reliable system. See electric delivery rates.

Supply: The cost of electricity itself. Your supplier can be Eversource, or you can pick another supplier. See electric supply rates.

What to Know About Switching Electric Suppliers

Your electricity bill will come from Eversource, but the amount you pay for your supply charge, as well as where the electricity you use is generated, can be changed by choosing to purchase your power from another supplier. View your current supplier.

What to consider when choosing a supplier

  • What is the length of the contract I'm entering?
  • Will my rate change over time, or stay the same?
  • Are there early termination fees?
  • Can I switch to a different supplier?

Don’t get scammed

We never call or solicit door-to-door on behalf of any supplier.

We urge you to always decline any door-to-door offers or requests to discuss energy rates from someone claiming to be an Eversource employee.

You also have the option of blocking your account from unauthorized switching to a third-party supplier from Basic Service.

You should always contact us to double check the legitimacy of any offer. Don't dial a phone number provided by a solicitor.

Community Choice Aggregation

Some towns in Massachusetts have elected to purchase electricity in bulk on behalf of their residents. When a community opts for Community Choice Aggregation, also called Municipal Aggregation, all residents will receive a letter from their town informing them of their aggregation’s supply rate and their ability to opt-out of the program.

If you enroll in the aggregation, Eversource will still deliver power, read your meter, care for the poles and wires, provide customer service and restore power when there is a service interruption.

If you have a question regarding your town's aggregation, more information is available at, and you can contact your town or supplier directly.

Want to Switch Suppliers?

Massachusetts maintains a list of current offers available from suppliers with links to enroll in the rate that's right for you.

You will need to check your online account settings under Privacy/Supplier Settings before you make the switch.

If you decide that a competitive supplier is not right for you, we offer other ways to lower your bill and use less energy.
