Taking control of our energy future.

Lowering costs, investing in innovation.

Exeter Community Power gives our town greater choices over our energy options, while lowering costs.

In 2022, the Exeter voters adopted the Exeter Community Power Plan at Town Meeting.

We are now putting that plan to action to create short- and long-term benefits for our energy users.

How Community Power Works

Exeter Community Power combines the buying power of residents and businesses so that together we can achieve competitively priced electricity.​ Customers are always free to choose to buy power from Unitil Corporation, or from another market option, by submitting notice in advance of their next utility meter read date.

By accessing the power market, we can control price volatility and choose which energy sources to buy or build.

Exeter Community Power purchases electricity from the sources you choose.

Delivery

Unitil delivers the electricity using the same power line infrastructure and billing mechanisms.

Community

Exeter Energy Users save money and have the power to choose new rates and products, and how much electricity comes from renewable sources.

Electricity markets are changing. Customers are generating their own power and adopting new technologies that add value to our energy portfolio.

Exeter Community Power will harness that value, and empower customers to create a more innovative and cost-effective energy future.
