The City of Somerville launched the Somerville Community Choice Electricity program for residents and businesses in July 2017. The primary goals of the program are to provide annual savings and rate stability for participating consumers. However, the program will also offer participants exciting renewable energy options from which to choose. The program was approved by the City Council and the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities.
