As a municipal electric utility, NAED operates its own energy efficiency and rebate programs that are separate from privately owned electric utility programs offered by Mass Save. As such, NAED customers are solely eligible for electricity related rebates offered by NAED. NAED customers that are served by a Mass Save participating natural gas provider may be eligible for natural gas specific rebates from Mass Save.
No. The Department of Telecommunications and Energy (now the Department of Public Utilities (DPU)) ordered deregulation to begin in 1998, allowing customers of privately owned Massachusetts electric companies to be given a choice in energy suppliers. NAED and other municipal electric utilities are exempt from this legislation.
This restructuring law was introduced to create competition and lower electric costs for consumers. NAED customers consistently enjoy lower rates than customers of investor or privately-owned utilities.
