Using our collective power to lower costs and

gain control of where our energy comes from.

In 2022, the Nashua Board of Aldermen adopted the Nashua Community Power Plan.

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


How Community Power Works

Nashua Community Power combines the buying power of residents and businesses so that together we can achieve competitively priced electricity:

  • In advance of the launch of Nashua Community Power, all customers within the City have been mailed a notice (containing information about their electricity rates and energy supply choice options).

  • The City also hosted a Public Information Meeting to answer questions about the program on April 5, 2023.

  • All customers have at least until April 23, 2023 — when Nashua Community Power launches! — to consider whether to opt-out, opt-in, or opt-up to choose a cleaner power option:

  • Most customers currently on Eversource's default supply service do not have to take any action to benefit from our lower electricity rate: unless they choose to opt-out of the program, they will begin taking service from Nashua Community Power on the date Eversource reads their meter between late April and May 2023.

  • Select customer groups are not eligible for automatic enrollment (listed below) but may choose to opt-in.

  • After the launch of Nashua Community Power, customers are always free to choose to buy power from Eversource, 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.


Nashua Community Power purchases electricity from the sources you choose.


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


Nashua Energy Customers 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.

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

Mid-sized commercial customers (Class GV) can also pay an additional 0.4¢ / kWh, 1.1¢ / kWh or 3.3¢ / kWh to opt-up to Granite Plus, Clean 50, or Clean 100.

Note that variable rates shown for Eversource are charged by the utility based on the amount of electricity you use within each calendar month, whereas variable rates for Community Power are charged starting on the date within each month when Eversource reads your electricity meter.

For example, you would be charged the Community Power rate shown for “July” for usage during the period between when Eversource reads your meter in July until the utility closes your billing cycle by reading your meter again about one month later. Refer to our FAQs for more details. 

Exceptions to Automatic Enrollment

Certain customer groups, will NOT be automatically enrolled in Nashua Community Power including:

  • Customers buying electricity from a third-party supplier.

  • Net Metered customers.

  • Large General Service, Backup Service, and Commercial & Industrial electric vehicle charging station customers (Eversource rate classes Class LG, B, EV-2).

If one of these exceptions applies to you, contact us to discuss your options or visit our Frequently Asked Questions page to learn more.
