October 2003 - NSTAR, an investor-owned utility that serves 1.1 million electricity customers in Massachusetts, filed with the Massachusetts Department of Telecommunications and Energy to offer a green power option to its residential and small commercial customers on standard offer or default service. Under its proposed NSTAR Green program, customers could meet 25% of their electricity needs from new, renewable energy sources. In its filing, NSTAR estimated that the green power would be priced about 10% above standard offer or default rates. NSTAR plans to administer the program in partnership with one or more regional green electricity suppliers.
