Save money by switching today

Like many utilities, National Grid prices are on the rise. However, customers in this region can save significantly by switching providers today. Even though National Grid is one of the biggest utilities in the Northeast, residents in this area can save around 18 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) by switching to Constellation or Clearview Energy

The average monthly electricity usage in Massachusetts is 596 kWh, according to the latest data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). National Grid’s rate of 33.89 cents per kWh means residents could be paying over $200/month this winter. However, by switching to Constellation or Clearview with rates starting as low as 17.99 cents per kWh, that electricity would cost around $107. 

What does this mean for you?

If you reside in the National Grid service area and opt not to choose your energy supplier, National Grid will charge you a standard rate for electricity service. This rate is called the price to compare. 

National Grid is raising prices by over 60% through 2023, which means customers in this area will be spending more on electricity through the coldest months of the year. By switching, you could save nearly 50% on your monthly electric bill.

How to switch providers

If you’ve never switched electricity providers before, one of your first questions might be: what is the best electric company near me?

What is the difference between a utility and a supplier?

Utility companies, like National Grid, are assigned to you based on where you live. They’re the company that is responsible for delivering your electricity, responding to power outages, and fixing downed power lines in your area. In contrast, a supplier is the company that sells electricity to you directly, allowing you to take advantage of cheap electricity in Massachusetts.
