Consistent with the terms of the electric service agreement and in context with the extraordinarily high energy costs in the current market, the Town of Carlisle’s Community Choice Power Supply Program will not be adding any new customers at the Program rate; however, the electricity supplier will enroll accounts at the market rates listed below for the remainder of the current electricity supply contract. The Program market rates are currently above Eversource’s Basic Service rate of $0.16078 (thru December 2023). 

If you are CURRENTLY ENROLLED in the Program and wish to change your product selection, please call (866) 485-5858 ext. 1.


The Carlisle Community Choice Power Supply Program is a municipal aggregation program. According to Massachusetts law (M.G.L. c. 164, § 134), municipal aggregation enables local government to combine the purchasing power of its residents and businesses so that it can provide them with an alternative electricity supply. Once in place, the local government can monitor and set its own energy related goals for the program such as savings, stability or green options. Consumers are no longer “stuck” with the cost and fluctuation of the utility’s Basic Service rates because the program offers them another option.

This Program only affects the supply portion of your monthly bill. It will not affect the delivery portion. Eversource will continue to deliver your electricity but Carlisle, using a competitive bid process, has chosen the supplier for the Program.

The Town of Carlisle is pleased to announce that Residents Energy, based in Newark, NJ, has been selected as the supplier for its Program.

(If you are already participating in the Program but would like to switch to a different rate/product. Please process an OPT-IN form.)

You will not notice any change in your electricity service.

The only difference you will see is that Residents Energy will be printed under the “Supply Services” section of your monthly bill. You will continue to receive one bill from Eversource. You will continue to send your payments to Eversource for processing. Eversource will continue to respond to emergencies, read meters and maintain the distribution and transmission lines. Reliability and quality of service will remain the same. Furthermore, you will continue to have all existing consumer rights and protections.

If you have received a notification letter

You do not need to take any action to participate in the Program. All Basic Service consumers that have received the notification letter and have not opted-out will be enrolled in the Program.

You will continue to receive those benefits.

If you have solar panels

You will continue to receive your net metering credits.

If you have already chosen a competitive supplier on your own

If you have received a notification letter and have already chosen a competitive supplier on your own, you must opt-out of this Program.  This will ensure you continue to get your electricity from that Competitive Supplier.

If you have already chosen a green power supply option on your own

If you have received a notification letter and have already chosen a green power supply option, your participation in the Program will not affect your participation with that green power supply option.

If you do not wish to participate in this program

You may:
1) Opt-out and continue paying Eversource’s Basic Service rate; or
2) Opt-out and choose your own Competitive Supplier (if one is available to you).

How to OPT-OUT

Within 30 days of receipt of the notification letter, fill out, sign, and return the enclosed card in the postage paid envelope OR click the OPT-OUT button to the right, then fill out and submit the form.

Any time after enrollment

You can still opt-out with NO CHARGE. It may take a couple of billing cycles before you are back on Eversource’s Basic Service.  You may submit an opt-out form by clicking the OPT-OUT button OR call Colonial Power Group, Inc. at (866) 485-5858 (ext. 1) and ask to be placed  on Eversource Basic Service.

Savings not guaranteed

Basic Service rates change twice a year or more, depending on rate class. As a result, the aggregation rate may not always be lower than the Basic Service rate. The goal of the aggregation is to deliver savings over the life of the Program against Basic Service. However, such savings and future savings cannot be guaranteed.

No Fees

There are no enrollment, early termination, or cancellation fees attached to the Program. However, anyone switching from a contract with a third-party supplier may be subject to penalties or early termination fees charged by that supplier. Ratepayers should verify terms before switching.

If you fail to pay your bill in a timely manner

Consistent with the requirements of Massachusetts law, you may be switched back to the Eversource Basic Service.
