Support New England Renewable Resources
Cape Light Compact is proud to offer Cape Light Compact Local Green℠, a power supply option for those that want to support local, New England-based renewable energy resources, including resources located on Cape Cod.
When you choose to participate in CLC Local Green℠, the Compact and its supplier will match your annual electricity usage with your chosen percentage (50% or 100%) of Massachusetts RPS Class 1 renewable energy certificates (RECs). All of the benefits and protections of the Compact’s standard green aggregation power supply program still apply, but now your usage will be matched with 50% or 100% Class 1 RECs. By matching more of your usage with Class 1 RECs, you are providing extra support for the development of additional renewable resources in New England. Plus, the premium you pay for CLC Local Green℠ is 100% tax-deductible!
Program Update: Beginning with December 2021 meter read dates, the Compact will purchase additional Class I RECs such that a total of 50% or 100% of Cape Light Compact Local Green℠ power supply customers’ usage is met with Class I RECs, inclusive of the Class I RECs being purchased to meet the Massachusetts Renewable Portfolio Standard (“RPS”) and Clean Energy Standard (“CES”).
The price of CLC Local Green℠ 50% will remain unchanged at 1.3 ¢/kWh
The price of CLC Local Green℠ 100% will increase to 3.6 ¢/kWh (a 0.9 ¢/kWh increase).
