[ARCHIVED] Gardner Officials Release City's Community Choice Power Supply Program Aggregation Plan


Gardner Officials Have Released the City’s Community Choice Power Supply Program Aggregation Plan

The City of Gardner developed the Aggregation Plan in compliance with Massachusetts law regarding public aggregation of electric consumers. It contains required information on the structure, operations, services, funding, and policies of the City’s Plan. The Plan has been developed in consultation with the City’s aggregation implementation consultant, Colonial Power Group, Inc. (CPG) and the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER).

The purpose of this Plan is to represent consumer interests in competitive markets for electricity. It seeks to aggregate consumers in the City to negotiate rates for power supply. It brings together the buying power of more than 20,000 consumers. Furthermore, the City seeks to better manage energy prices. Participation is voluntary for each eligible consumer.
