Lunenburg Community Choice Power Supply Program
The Town of Lunenburg is pleased to announce that it has selected Dominion Energy Solutions, Inc. as the supplier for its Community Choice Power Supply Program. Dominion will provide electric power supply for all Basic Service consumers in Lunenburg. The new pricing for Lunenburg consumers of all rate classes is $0.09215/kWh for the period January 2014 thru June 2014 and $0.0770/kWh for the period July 2014 thru November 2014.
YOU WILL NOT NOTICE ANY CHANGE. The only difference you will see is that Dominion Energy Solutions, Inc. will be printed under the “Supply Services” section of your monthly bill. You will continue to receive one bill from Unitil. You will continue to send your payments to Unitil for processing. Unitil will continue to respond to emergencies, read meters and maintain the distribution and transmission lines. Reliability and quality of service will remain the same. Furthermore, you will continue to have all existing consumer rights and protections.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO TAKE ANY ACTION to participate in Lunenburg’s Community Choice Power Supply Program. All consumers currently on basic service will automatically be enrolled in the Program and start benefiting from the lower rate.
BUDGET PLAN OR ELIGIBLE LOW-INCOME DELIVERY RATE CONSUMERS will continue to receive those benefits from Unitil.
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY CHOSEN A COMPETITIVE SUPPLIER ON YOUR OWN You will not be enrolled in this Program. You will continue to get your electricity from that Competitive Supplier.
IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM you may: 1) Opt-out and continue paying Unitil’s Basic Service rate; or 2) Opt-out and choose your own Competitive Supplier (if one is available to you)

THE LANCASTER COMMUNITY CHOICE POWER SUPPLY PROGRAM IS A MUNICIPAL AGGREGATION. It gives the Town of Lancaster choice and control over the source of their electricity and stabilizes electricity bills in the future by using the bulk buying power of all of its ratepayers.
The purpose of Community Choice Power Supply Programs is to represent consumer interests in competitive markets for electricity. It seeks to aggregate consumers in cities and towns to negotiate the best rates for the supply of electricity and to advance consumer protection for the residents and businesses of the community. Any individual has the opportunity to opt-out of the Program at any time and choose any electric supplier they wish.
