Salisbury to roll out community choice electricity program | Local News | newburyportnews.com
SALISBURY — A new green energy program could save residents an average of 19 percent on their electric bills this winter.
The Marlborough-based aggregation consulting firm Colonial Power Group Inc. announced in a press release that it helped the town enter into a three-year agreement with First Power Point LLC of Warwick, Rhode Island, which will bring electricity savings to residents through the newly created Salisbury Community Choice Power Supply Program.
“The town went through a local and state process,” Colonial Power Group President Mark Cappadona said. “After that, it ends with the (state) Department of Public Utilities issuing an order which allows them to go out to bid. The market was not in their favor for the last couple of tries but they eventually found some favorable pricing.”
