Shrewsbury Offers Green Power Option

February 2007 - Shrewsbury Electric and Cable Operations (SELCO) announced the availability of a green power option for its 12,000 electricity customers in Massachusetts. Under the GreenLight program, an average household can purchase renewable energy for 15% of their electricity needs for $5 per month or 30% of their electricity needs for $10 per month. The average Shrewsbury resident uses 500 kWh of electricity each month. The utility will also work with customers who want to purchase renewable energy in larger increments.

To supply the program, the utility will procure renewable energy certificates (RECs) sourced from New England-based wind projects under a wholesale agreement with Mass Energy Consumers Alliance. SELCO is offering the option in response to its 2005 Customer Satisfaction Survey in which 67% of respondents said they were interested in purchasing renewable electricity.
