Public Review Period: Aggregation Plan

-A A +A

AGGREGATION PLAN PUBLIC REVIEW PERIOD

November 14, 2017 to December 6, 2017

 

At our Town Meeting on May 1, 2017, the residents voted to authorize the Board of Selectmen to research, develop and implement an aggregation program and enter into a contract with a competitive supplier of electricity.

 

The objectives of the aggregation program are to:

lower the cost of electricity;

gain longer term price stability; and

offer more renewable energy options.

 

The aggregation plan will go through a very strict and comprehensive review and approval process with the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) and the Department of Public Utilities (DPU).

 

An important element of the process leading to approval of the aggregation plan of a municipality by the DPU is to allow for review of the aggregation plan by its residents. The aggregation plan is available for review at our municipal offices and on our website.

 

Please review the aggregation plan and submit any comments or questions in writing to the Board of Selectmen during the review period or attend the December 5, 2017 meeting of the Board of Selectmen during the review period to offer comments or questions orally.

 

This public review period will be completed before the aggregation plan is submitted to the DPU for their review and approval.
