Agera Energy Helps Cambridge Switch To Renewable Energy
Agera Energy has helped the city of Cambridge ditch, almost all of its former electricity providers and replaces it with renewable energy. The company has been the primary contractor behind the Cambridge Community Electricity; the program has been open for residents of the city for the past several months and operated by Agera Energy.
Through the program, residents are given access to a 10.486 cents per kilowatt-hour energy rate instead of Eversource’s typical price. This is because Agera Energy uses more solar energy from local resources than is required by state officials. The savings from using more renewable energy is then passed on to the residents who are in the Cambridge Community Electricity program; more specifically, those registered for the Standard Green option.
In contrast to what Standard Green users are being charged, Eversource’s normal service rate was 13.157 cents per kilowatt-hour. The program was praised by City Manager Louis A. DePasquale. Speaking about Agera Energy and the program, he especially applauded the fact that residents can help reduce greenhouse gases while still minimizing their electricity bills.
However, he said that the work still isn’t done. He said that it’s now possible for residents to switch over to 100% renewable energy now that they’ve seen the positive results that can be seen once the switchover has been done. After all, not only would the be helping the planet but also their own pockets at the same time. The 100% Green Option is still more expensive than the rate that standard Green Option users would be used to; 12.180 cents per kilowatt-hour, although that’s still less expensive than Eversource’s basic service.
