Cape Light Compact And ConEdison Solutions Announce New Low Electricity Prices

May 24, 2012

Lowest Electricity Supply Prices Since 2005
Residential, Small Commercial and Cape Light Compact GreenSM Customers Can All Receive Savings

Barnstable, MA - The Cape Light Compact and its electricity supplier, ConEdison Solutions, are pleased to announce their lowest electricity prices for Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard residential and small commercial customers since 2005, when Standard Offer service ended and full competitive markets opened up.  The new lower prices will be in effect from the July 2012 to January 2013 meter read dates and will automatically adjust for current Cape Light Compact customers.

“We are thrilled that we are able to offer our Cape and Martha’s Vineyard customers one of the best basic electricity prices currently available,” said Bill Doherty, Chairman of the Cape Light Compact.  “As   a result of low natural gas prices, which set the price of electricity in New England, coupled with Cape Light Compact’s energy efficiency programs and our active efforts to always drive for the best supply price, we’re working hard to make your electric bills lower.  We’d also like to invite any customers who have left Cape Light Compact’s Power Supply Program for other competitive suppliers to take a second look at our latest offers, especially in these challenging economic times.  With electricity prices this low, there has never been a better time or reason to join your neighbors on our quality service.”

"Businesses and households throughout Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard save money on electricity by leveraging the power of the marketplace," said James Mueller, Vice President, Customer Operations for ConEdison Solutions.  "ConEdison Solutions knows that lower energy costs can make a significant difference in making ends meet.  We are proud to work in partnership with Cape Light Compact to help manage energy costs throughout the region."

Residential                                6.688 cents per kWh
Small Commercial                     6.676 cents per kWh
Large Industrial (July – Oct)       6.676 cents per kWh
