Power for Webster, by Webster

In 2023, the Webster Town Meeting adopted the Webster 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

Webster 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 Webster Community Power, all customers within the Town will be mailed a notice (containing information about their electricity rates and energy supply choice options).​

  • The Town is hosting a public information meeting to answer questions about the program at 6:30 pm on Monday January 29, 2024 at Webster Town Hall, 945 Battle St, Webster, NH 03303.

  • All customers have until February 26th — when Webster Community Power launches! — to consider whether to opt-out, opt-in, or opt-up to choose a cleaner power option with no fee, penalty, or lock-in by Community Power:​

    • ​​​Most customers currently on Eversource or Unitil default supply service do not have to take any action to benefit from our lower electricity rates: unless they choose to opt-out of the program, Webster Community Power will begin serving them on the date that their utility reads their meter on or after March 1, 2024
    • Select customer groups are not eligible for automatic enrollment (listed below) but may choose to opt-in.

  • After the launch of Webster 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.

Webster Community Power purchases electricity from the sources you choose.

Delivery

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

Community

Webster 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.

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