Cities and towns across the nation have turned to energy aggregation programs as a vital way to save money. The Massachusetts town of Grafton, about 60 miles southwest of Boston, has saved residents about $2 million through initiatives including energy aggregation, recycling, and the implementation of solar energy agreements.
Through the Grafton Energy Choice program, residential participants save more than 3.5 cents per kWH compared to the National Grid price. Each Grafton household saves about $27 per month by participating in the energy aggregation program.
The town’s Energy Choice program also spared participating residents from recent rate hikes – as much as 34 percent – which went into effect from National Grid this past November. This winter, alone, the Energy Choice program may save residents about $850,000, according to Grafton town administrator Timothy McInerney.
