Imagine what Plainfield would look like...

...powered completely by renewable energy

Plainfield Community Power is working towards that goal by expanding energy choices for our residents, while lowering costs.

In 2022, the Plainfield voters adopted the Plainfield 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

Plainfield 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 Plainfield Community Power, all customers within the Town have been mailed a notice (containing information about their electricity rates and energy supply choice options).

  • The Town also hosted a public information meeting to answer questions about the program on April 4, 2023.

  • All customers have at least until April 27, 2023 — when Plainfield 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 and Liberty Utilities 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 Plainfield Community Power on the date that their utility reads their meter between late April and May 2023.

  • Select customer groups, including all customers served by the NH Electric Co-op, are not eligible for automatic enrollment (listed below) but may choose to opt-in.

  • After the launch of Plainfield Community Power, customers are always free to choose to buy power from their utility, 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.


Plainfield Community Power purchases electricity from the sources you choose.


Eversource, Liberty, and NH Electric Co-op deliver the electricity using the same power line infrastructure and billing mechanisms.


Plainfield 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.

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