Brookline Green Electricity
Brookline Green Electricity (BGE) is an electricity supply program organized by the town of Brookline to provide more renewable electricity choices to the community. With BGE, Eversource continues to deliver electricity, repair poles and outages and manage all electricity billing. The only change is the source and cost of your electricity supply, which is chosen by the Town.
On the BGE website BrooklineGreen.com, residents, business owners, and other ratepayers can:
- Learn how the program works;
- Get current information on program rates and how they compare to Eversource’s Basic Service rates;
- Easily enroll (opt-in) or unenroll (opt-out) in the four BGE options;
- Read the aggregation plan;
- See the benefits of Opting Up to 100% New England-based renewable energy.
Please keep in mind that future savings cannot be guaranteed because Eversource Basic Service rates change every six months for residential and commercial customers and every three months for industrial customers. Newly eligible customers will receive an opt-out letter package detailing the program and ways to leave the program (opt out); those who choose not to opt out will be automatically enrolled. Customers who have chosen a third-party supplier are not eligible for automatic enrollment and will not receive an opt-out package. They can voluntarily join the program but they may be subject to penalties or early termination fees from the third-party supplier if they switch to the electricity aggregation program during the term of their contract with their chosen supplier.
Our Town’s community electricity program has posted the latest Electricity Disclosure Label, which describes the energy mix for all program options. The label can be found in the resources section on the program website BrooklineGreen.com.
Brookline Green Electricity is a program offered by the Town of Brookline to provide residents and businesses with Town-vetted options for electricity supply. Brookline Green Electricity does not replace Eversource, the electric utility in Brookline, which continues to deliver electricity, repair any outages, and billing, so customers continue to receive one bill. The program website, BrooklineGreen.com, contains a description of the program, forms, and a phone number to call with questions.
