Region Electricity Supply Aggregation

Rockingham Planning Commission is forming an electricity supply aggregation for municipal, school, and county facilities in our region. The goal of the Electricity Supply Aggregation is to purchase electricity as a group from a competitive supplier at a lower rate than each member could receive on its own. By purchasing as an aggregation, municipalities and school districts can offer electricity suppliers a larger demand than if they each tried to purchase electricity individually. The larger demand, in turn, allows suppliers to offer a better rate to the aggregation than it could to individual members. The aggregation also makes it possible for members to share the costs of documenting load data, organizing a RPF process, selecting a supplier, conducting negotiations, and managing energy contracts.

The first step is to gauge the level of interest among our member municipalities. While we do not need a firm commitment at this point, if you or your municipality are interested in participating please respond to Tim Roache, RPC Executive Director (troache@rpc-nh.org) to to the following questions by Friday, March 8.

  1. Who is the default electricity supplier for your municipal/school buildings? (ex. Eversource, Unitil, NH Electric Coop)
  2. Are any of your municipal/school electricity accounts currently with a competitive supplier?
    1. If yes, when does your current contract end?
  3. Do you have a current list of the electricity account numbers servicing your municipal/school buildings?
  4. Do you currently track electricity usage for your municipal/school buildings?
  5. Do you have any renewable energy projects planned for the next 2 years that would significantly reduce the amount of electricity you purchase from the grid?

We will hold our first informational meeting on Monday, March 18 at 10:00 AM at the Rockingham Planning Commission office, 156 Water Street, Exeter, NH (directions). We hope you can join us.
