No matter who you choose to buy energy from, your local utility will continue to deliver your electricity and/or gas and respond to service interruptions and outages. You will still pay your utility for these services. Depending on your area, you can choose to receive a single bill from your utility listing your utility delivery charges and competitive supply charges, or separate bills from the utility and alternate energy provider.  The information on this page was last updated on May 24, 2011.  Please be sure to get accurate and up-to-date information before making any decision.

Massachusetts
Electric:

Massachusetts deregulated its electricity markets in 1998. Each of the investor owned electric utilities (Nstar, National Grid, Fitchburg Gas & Electric/Unitil and Western Massachusetts Electric) now offer customers the chance to save money by shopping for the supply portion of their electric bill.

The utilities sold off their power plants, and now only own the transmission and distribution wires, while also providing "backstop" power to customers who do not shop for electricity. With the move to competition, Massachusetts utilities have separated their service into two parts:

Regulated distribution of power, which is still only provided by the utility, and
Supply of the electric commodity, which is open to competition.
Customers can choose to receive their electric supply from their utility, or an alternate energy provider.

In Massachusetts, customers who do not choose an alternate energy provider receive "basic" supply service from the utility. Rates for basic service are set via competitive bidding, and are adjusted frequently, based on a customer's class.

Typically, basic service prices for large and medium business customers change monthly. The size cutoff for customers in this class varies by your utility.

Residential and small business customers are typically served on basic service prices that are fixed for six months.

Customers who choose an alternate energy provider still have their power delivered to them by their local utility, and contact their utility for all outage reporting. Customers can choose to receive either a single bill from their utility for their delivery service and energy supply service, or can receive two bills, one from each company.

Natural Gas:

Massachusetts reformed its natural gas industry to offer all customers a chance to shop for lower natural gas rates. Customers can choose a different company to supply them with their gas supply. Customers choosing an alternate gas supplier will still have their gas supply delivered by the local utility, but customers will be buying their gas supply from a new company.

A customer's natural gas bill has been separated into two parts:

Regulated distribution of gas, which is still only provided by the utility, and
Supply of the gas commodity, which is open to competition.
Customers can choose to receive their gas supply from their utility, or an alternate gas provider.

If customers do not shop for an alternate gas supplier, they receive default supply service from their utility. Under default supply service, customers pay a supply charge called "cost of gas" which can vary as often as monthly. Customers can avoid wild monthly swings in the gas supply charge by contracting with an alternative gas supplier.

No matter who you choose to buy energy from, your local utility will continue to deliver your gas and respond to service interruptions and outages. You will still pay your utility for these services. Depending on your area, you can choose to receive a single bill from your utility listing your utility delivery charges and supplier commodity charges, or separate bills from the utility and alternate energy provider.
