How Does Energy Choice Work?

In 1998, the state of Massachusetts deregulated the electricity market, giving electricity consumers Energy Choice, or the ability to pick their own electricity provider.

To understand Energy Choice, it’s important to know the difference between utility providers and electricity providers.

  • Utility Provider – In charge of the distribution of electricity to your home. You cannot switch utility providers. If you live in Cambridge, Eversource is your utility provider.
  • Electricity Provider – Supplies the electricity you use. Energy Choice allows you to switch electricity providers. Your utility provider can also be your electricity provider.

Energy Choice forces electricity providers to compete with one another, keeping electricity prices low, but also giving the electricity consumer more options than ever before.

If you want to pick a low fixed-rate plan and save as much as possible, you can do that. If you want to support the transition to clean energy, you can get a renewable electricity plan and do that as well. The choice is yours.
