Notice of Public Hearing

On December 5, 2018, the Town of Huntington ("Town") filed a request with the Department of Public Utilities ("Department") for approval of a municipal aggregation plan pursuant to G.L. c. 164, § 134. General Laws c. 164, § 134 authorizes a municipality to procure electric supply on behalf of consumers within its municipal borders through a municipal aggregation program. Eligible electricity consumers not already enrolled with a competitive electric supplier would be automatically enrolled in the municipal aggregation program unless they chose to opt-out, in which case they would continue to receive basic service provided by their electric distribution company, NSTAR Electric Company, d/b/a Eversource Energy. The Department docketed this petition as D.P.U. 18-140.

The Town has retained Colonial Power Group, Inc. ("Colonial") to serve as its agent and consultant in this proceeding and to assist in the implementation of the municipal aggregation program. The Town seeks a waiver on its own behalf and on behalf of the competitive electric supplier(s) chosen for the municipal aggregation program, of certain information disclosure requirements contained in G.L. c. 164, § 1F(6) and 220 CMR 11.06(4)(c).

A copy of the Town's petition is available for public viewing during regular business hours at the Department's offices, One South Station – 5th Floor, Boston, Massachusetts 02110 and on the Department's website at http://www.mass.gov/dpu. Documents on the Department's website may be accessed by docket number (D.P.U. 18-140) in the file room at http://web1.env.state.ma.us/DPU/FileRoom/dockets/bynumber. A copy of the petition is also available for public viewing at Huntington Town Hall, 24 Russell Road, Huntington, Massachusetts.

The Department will conduct a public hearing to receive comments on the proposed municipal aggregation plan. The hearing will take place on January 30, 2019 at 2:00 p.m., at the Department's offices located at One South Station – 5th Floor, Boston, Massachusetts. Any person who desires to comment may do so at the time and place noted above or may submit written comments to the Department not later than the close of business (5:00 p.m.) on January 30, 2018.
