Your total bill is broken out into separate line items so you can see the costs for each service. The only rate affected by this Program is rate for the SUPPLY. The Community Choice Power Supply Program rate will be seen as a line item under "Supplier Service Generation Charge". The supplier listed will be the Competitive Supplier with whom your community has contracted.
One additional line item you may see is a one time "recalculation" line item:
If you are on a fixed rate for Basic Service (which changes every six months) and decide to switch to a Competitive Power Supplier before the six-month period is over, your electric bill will be recalculated.
This means your electric bill for the period you were on the fixed rate will be recalculated as if you were on the monthly variable rate for that period. This ensures all consumers pay the actual cost of the electricity they have used. This adjustment may be a credit or debit, and will be reflected on your first bill after the switch is effective.
If you are on the Basic Service Variable Rate, there are no adjustments by NSTAR as a result of the change.
