renewable energyDue to the increasing requirements of adding new renewable energy resources to the BELD power supply mix, it’s necessary for us to increase our Energy Charge March 1 by $0.0025/kWh, raising the rate from $.06891 cents/kWh to $.07141 cents/kWh. The increasing renewable energy requirements mandated by the State of Massachusetts will require BELD to reevaluate our rates more frequently in the future. This increase will adjust our electric rate by approximately 1.8%, adding approximately $1.75/month to the average residential customer bill (700 kWh).  As always, we will continue to work hard to find new ways to reduce costs and keep your electric rates affordable.

A customer received a scam call from a local number.
Scammer was looking for the owner of the property to get them lower rates for electricity. We are the only electric company in town and our electric rates are already lower than all surrounding towns rates. These calls should be ignored with no information given. 

Luckily this customer didn’t give them any information and notified us right away to get notice to rest of the town. Please do not supply these types of calls with ANY information about you, your address or your services.
