Massachusetts electricity deregulation and retail access officially began back in March of 1998.
The three participating utilities are NSTAR, (which is comprised of a merger of Boston Edison,
Commonwealth Edison and Cambridge Edison), Mass Electric and Western Mass Electric. The DTE,
(Department of Telecommunications and Energy), allowed customers to stay on a special discounted
rate if they were receiving electric service prior to the introduction of electricity deregulation in Massachusetts.
On March 1st 2005, Massachusetts will do away with the Standard Offer Service (SOS) rate and
customers on Standard Offer Service will be placed on Default Service, which is not a mandated
fixed rate but a variable monthly rate that is susceptible to the changing market conditions and
electric demands of the Northeast. Customers in Massachusetts should seriously consider looking
at competitive fixed plans to combat any spikes and volatility in the electricity markets. Good
Energy can implement those plans for your company and we are here to help with this process at no cost to you.
Today, if a consumer of power wishes to open a new commercial account in any of the above utility
territories, the customer is automatically placed on the "Default Rate". The Default Rate is
determined by the market price for blocks of power purchased by each individual utility every six
months for individual rate classes. Hence, the Standard Rate does not apply to new accounts.
Furthermore, those customers benefiting from the artificially low Standard Rate could be
transferred to the Default Rate as a result of any changes made to an account including property
sale or purchase, rate class changes due to changes in consumption or change of legal name. This
gradual phase-out of the Standard Rate is in place to incentivize competition in MA.
There may be excellent opportunities for savings and budgetary certainty by shopping for a
competitive third-party electricity supplier. Good Energy is here to help with this process.
