New Supplier for Community Choice Power Supply Program
The City of Pittsfield announce Tuesday that Dynegy Energy Services has been selected as the new supplier for its Community Choice Power Supply Program. According to a press release from the office of Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer, no action will be required by individual consumers. All accounts currently enrolled in the program will be switched to Dynegy as of the January 2021 meter reads. The change will be noted on the January 2021 bills and will be reflected on the February 2021 bills.
According to the release, the city’s new aggregation rate is fixed at $0.09603 per kWh for all rate classes for 36 months (January 2021 to January 2024). Eversource’s Residential Basic Service rate is fixed at $0.10795 per kWh from Jan. 1, 2021 through June 30, 2021.
Under the city’s new contract with Dynegy, 23 percent of the power supply will be offset with MA Class I Renewable Energy Certificates from New England renewable sources, which is 5 percent above the current state mandate of 18 percent for these renewables.
The city has been able to save consumers nearly $2.4 million over the past three years through the contract for competitive supply rates. We look forward to continued savings and price stability under the new contract while delivering an energy supply that is more sustainable than what the utility can offer. ~ James McGrath, Pittsfield’s Natural Resource Program Manager
