In 2019, the town of Wareham launched its Community Electricity Aggregation (CEA) program designed to provide residents and businesses with competitive choice and long-term price stability. Now, the program has been renewed for another 35 months (almost 3 years!) and provides even more options with additional renewable electricity than the minimum required by state law.
Below is a chart comparing the current rates for the Wareham Community Electricity Aggregation program to Eversource’s Basic Service rates for residential customers.

Disclaimer: A goal of the CEA program is to produce savings for customers, but savings cannot be guaranteed compared to the utility’s basic service rate which change every six months for residential and small commercial customers, and every three months for large commercial customers. The aggregation program seeks to provide price stability and average savings over the full term of the program, but because future basic service rates are not known, there is no guarantee of savings.
