Cape Light Compact Announces Progress with Revised Aggregation Plan

Barnstable, MA – At its September 16th Governing Board meeting, the Cape Light Compact announced significant progress in the approval of its Revised Municipal Aggregation Plan.

Not only did the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU) approve the Compact’s plan (DPU 14-69 and 14-69A), a remaining issue with the Attorney General’s Office has also now been resolved. Attorney General Maura Healey congratulated the Compact on the DPU approval of the plan during a July meeting, and a recent communication from her office conveyed that it would not pursue a claim by the prior Attorney General that the Compact’s operational adder was unlawful.

The Compact and Attorney General’s Office also agreed to maintain on-going communications on issues of common concern, including public access to information about the Compact’s power supply contracts.

“All of this marks a great step forward for consumers on Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard,” said Maggie Downey, Cape Light Compact Administrator. “We are very pleased with the frank dialogue and the resulting understanding that we’ve come to with the Attorney General’s Office, and we look forward to continuing to work together for the benefit of the region,” Downey said.
