Municipal Aggregation is a program the Town of Franklin is working on to lower individual residential and small business electricity bills. On behalf of the 12,000-plus households and small businesses in town, the town is using its authority granted by state law to bulk purchase an electricity rate to help lower electricity costs for taxpayers. By using the purchasing capacity helps allow the town to leverage a potentially lower electricity rate than an individual user.

Basic Service rates change twice a year or more, depending on rate class. As a result, the aggregation rate may not always be lower than the Basic Service rate. The goal of the aggregation is to deliver savings over the life of the Program against National Grid Basic Service. However, such savings and future savings cannot be guaranteed.

Nexamp Solar Farm
Aside from the Community Choice Power Supply Program the Town of Franklin has worked with Nexamp to ensure that a portion of their farm that is currently being built on Spring Street be reserved for Franklin residents. Residents are eligible to subscribe to a new local shared community solar farm that is expected to go live in the Summer of 2021. Subscribers will receive credits on their National Grid electric bill for the energy produced by their solar farm at a special discount rate of 15%.
Openings were on a first-come, first-served basis until October 15th. However, due to such high interest the Franklin farm is now filled! However, Residents of Franklin can still enroll in one of their other National Grid projects at the standard 12.5% discount rate for Massachusetts.
The NEXamp savings for the Solar Farm on Spring Street program works concurrently with the Community Choice Power Supply Program and you could see financial benefits from both combined.
