Sustainability, Security, and Stability

We are strongly committed to providing competitive electricity prices and worry-free service to our customers through competitively-bid contracts. The Compact offers the security of a fixed-rate and stable power supply option for a specific time frame, typically six months, for residential and small commercial customers. The rate for large commercial customers changes every three months.

In 2017, we teamed up with our supplier, NextEra® Energy Services Massachusetts (NextEra Energy Services), to become a green aggregator, matching Compact customers’ annual usage above the mandated state requirements with voluntary Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) to provide a 100% renewable product. Read more about Green Aggregation.

While our standard supply products sources voluntary RECs from across the country, Customers can choose to opt-in to the CLC Local Green℠ program which matches either 50% or 100% of customer usage with Massachusetts Class I RECs from right here in New England.

Why did the electric rates increase?

Cape Light Compact has set the electricity supply rates for its green aggregation power supply program for the upcoming pricing term that begins with the December 2022 meter read dates and ends on June 2023 meter read dates for residential and commercial customers.

The Compact’s new residential pricing will be 21.699 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh), a rate that is nearly 4 cents per kWh lower than the utility’s basic service supply pricing. Compact power supply customers should see this price reflected on the electric utility bills that they receive in January 2023.

While energy prices typically increase during the winter months in New England, this year has seen particularly steep increases due to energy market conditions. The Compact’s December – June electric rates reflect the increase in New England-wide wholesale electricity market prices which is largely driven by increased natural gas prices.  All retail and utility electricity suppliers are facing these high market prices to which the war in Ukraine and a reduced supply of alternative fuels (e.g., coal) is contributing. Higher per-kilowatt hour electricity rates reinforce the importance of participating in the Compact’s energy efficiency programs to reduce kilowatt hour usage.
