For Immediate Release: June 7, 2024



South Yarmouth, MA – Cape Light Compact has set the electricity supply rates for its renewable aggregation power supply program for the upcoming pricing term that begins with the July 2024 meter read dates and ends on January 2025 meter read dates for residential and commercial customers. This summer’s rate represents a 16% decrease from the Compact’s current winter rate, and it is 12% lower than the Compact’s supply rate last summer.

The Compact’s new residential pricing will be 13.098 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh), which is over 2.5 cents per kilowatt hour lower than Eversource’s recently announced basic service supply pricing. Compact power supply customers should see this price reflected on the electric utility bills that they receive in August.

While electricity rates will be lower this summer, the Compact emphasizes that customers should continue to improve the energy efficiency of their homes and businesses. A properly weatherized home or business and an energy-efficient cooling system can help keep you comfortable throughout the hot summer months, while reducing your energy usage.

“The Compact is dedicated to securing competitive rates for Cape and Vineyard electric customers, and we’re glad that they will be seeing a decrease in energy costs this season,” said Maggie Downey, the Compact’s Chief Administrative Officer. She continues, “Even with lower energy costs, it is important for customers to continue to seek ways to be more energy efficient. The Compact offers rebates and incentives for weatherization and heat pumps, as well as small appliances such as window AC’s, air purifiers, and smart thermostats.”

Residential and commercial customers, including renters, can begin with a no-cost Energy Assessment to identify energy-saving opportunities and qualify for incentives on efficiency upgrades. The Compact, the Cape and Vineyard’s Sponsor of Mass Save®, offers significant rebates on insulation, air sealing, heat pumps, and other upgrades to make buildings more efficient and comfortable for all seasons. Additionally, income-qualified customers may receive incentives of up to 100% of the cost of weatherization and other upgrades.

Although energy rates have gone down, there are many resources for customers who need assistance paying their energy bills. Customers can explore billing and payment options including gas and electric discount rates, fuel assistance, and arrearage forgiveness programs. Contact information for billing and payment assistance programs can be found below.*

While the standard power supply program helps directly finance new renewable energy projects, CLC Local Green℠ goes above and beyond to provide additional support for local renewable energy development in New England. Pricing for CLC Local Green℠  50 includes a premium of 1.3 cents per kWh above the standard power supply price, and CLC Local Green℠ 100 includes a premium of 3.6 cents per kWh.
