Program Details

Hadley Community Electricity Aggregation (CEA) is an electricity supply program organized by the town of Hadley to provide residents and businesses with new, Town-vetted options for electricity supply.  The delivery of electricity and billing for use is still completed through Eversource, so customers continue to receive one bill from the utility.

Program products

Hadley CEA has a standard product, called Hadley Standard; participants in the program receive Hadley Standard unless they affirmatively choose the 100% renewable energy product called Hadley Premium 100% Local Green.

How to Participate in Hadley CEA

Most residents and businesses in Hadley already participate in the Hadley CEA program. Check your electricity bill to see if you’re one of them: the Supplier should be listed as Direct Energy Town of Hadley. If Eversource is still listed as your supplier, you may complete the enrollment form to sign up for Hadley CEA. If a different supplier is listed, contact that supplier to check for penalties or termination fees that they may charge before you join the Hadley CEA program.

Participation in the Hadley CEA program is voluntary: you can leave the program at any time without fee or penalty.

The program will periodically send Customer Notification letters to new or newly eligible electricity customers, which includes the program details, information about product prices, and renewable energy certificates. Customers who receive this letter and do not choose to opt out will be automatically enrolled. To enroll sooner, use our online forms.
