WESTFORD — The Westford Power Options Program contract has been renewed through November 2025. 

If you are a member of the POP Silver or POP Gold programs, you will need to select a new program or be automatically put back into National Grid Basic Service.

Residents who are enrolled in the POP Basic or POP Green options do not have to take any action to remain in the program.

Residents who wish to purchase 100% renewable energy should enroll in POP Plus, which replaces POP Gold. The Town of Westford encourages residents to enroll in this option if they can afford to do so.

POP Silver has been made obsolete by state-mandated increases to renewables in the power supply.

Rates are set to increase by approximately 50% on some plans. The updated POP Standard plan will see its cost increase from $0.10793 per kilowatt hour to $0.16174 per kilowatt hour. The updated POP Gold plan will see rates increase from $0.13695 per kilowatt hour to $0.17282 per kilowatt hour.

The new POP Basic plan, which has no additional renewable energy credits, is $0.15748 per kilowatt hour, compared to National Grid’s current rates of $0.18213 per kilowatt hour.

These new rates are effective on Dec. 1, 2023.

Residents can leave Westford POP at any time without penalty. To confirm you are enrolled in the program, check your bill. Delivery services are from Constellation NewEnergy (WestfordPOP).
