Rockland, a town in Plymouth County, Massachusetts, is poised to take another step to save energy costs by becoming part of a community electricity aggregation plan administered by Good Energy.
The town may soon vote on a proposal to work with Good Energy to choose an electricity provider for all residences and businesses who don’t opt out. Rockland resident may see lower electricity prices as a result of the initiative.
“Because of the size of the purchase we’d be able to demand a better price,” says Allan Chiocca, Town Administrator. “It will be a substantial savings to everyone. It could mean as much as $100 in annual savings per household.”
Located about five miles southeast of Boston, Rockland would be one of the first towns in the area to participate in a community electricity aggregation plan. The Metropolitan Area Planning Council selected Good Energy as a energy consultant, and the New York City-based company already administers community electricity aggregation plans for several other Massachusetts towns, including Arlington, Brookline, Dedham, Fairhaven, Melrose, New Bedford, and Somerville.
