Canton Electricity Choice

Canton Electricity Choice program status update


The Town of Canton is pleased to update you on the status of the Canton Electricity Choice (CEC) program.

The CEC program will be a municipal electricity aggregation, which is a type of electricity purchasing program for Canton residents and businesses. This program will allow the Town to use our collective buying power to take a big step toward our sustainability goals and provide affordable renewable electricity to Canton’s residential and business community members. The program will provide new choices that give electricity customers greater control over the cost and environmental impact of the electricity they use. Though the program will not be able to guarantee savings, the Town is committed to working toward competitive and stable prices.

There are several important stages we must go through before launching the program. Recently, the Town completed a review of its Aggregation Plan, including making this Plan available for public review and comment.  This review period ended February 2, 2023, and we thank everyone who submitted comments and questions.

The next stage was to submit the Aggregation Plan to state regulators for review and approval. The Plan was submitted to the MA Department of Public Utilities (DPU) for approval on March 24, 2023. Those interested in reviewing the filed Plan can download it from the Town of Canton Electricity Choice website ( ).
