Westford Electric Aggregation Update

With Westford Power Options Program, Most Westford Residents Unaffected by National Grid Winter Rate Hike

Westford, MA—Westford residents and businesses enrolled in Westford Power Options Program (Westford POP) will not be impacted by the rate hike recently announced by National Grid. Westford, which is under contract with electricity supplier Constellation, offers electricity program rates that are fixed and will not change through December 2023. The vast majority of Westford households participate in the Westford POP program.

As widely reported last week, National Grid announced that as of November 1, 2022, the default Residential Basic Service Fixed supply rate will be $0.33891/kWh, which is significantly higher than the standard Westford supply rate of $0.10793 cents/kWh. National Grid’s rates change twice a year for Residential and Small Business customers on May 1 and November 1, but Westford POP rates are fixed for the duration of the municipality’s contract, which expires in December 2023.

Westford residents and businesses can confirm that they are enrolled in Westford Power Options Program by looking at the Supply Services Section of a recent National Grid electric bill. If it says “Supplier: Constellation - Westford”, then that account is enrolled. If it says something else such as Basic Service Fixed or names a supplier other than Constellation, then that account is not enrolled.

Westford Power Options Program offers contract rate options:

  • POP Green — $0.10793/kWh

  • POP Silver 50% — $0.12083/kWh

  • POP Gold 100% — $0.13695/kWh

Availability to Customers Seeking to Join the Program:

The contract rates above are available to any Residential and Small Business customer that has never participated in the program.

The following customers may be offered a market rate, determined by the supplier:

  1. Residential and Small Businesses customers that have previously opted-out of the program and are seeking to re-join 
  1. Any Large Business customers

Residents and businesses can enroll in Westford Power Options Program or switch rate options at any time online at or by calling (833) 461-0813. It can take one or two billing cycles for the supplier change to appear on the National Grid bill.

Please note that because National Grid Basic Service rates are not known past April 2023 for Residential and Small Business customers or October 2022 for Large Business customers, future savings for the Westford Power Options Program cannot be guaranteed.
