Viridian Green Energy Rates for December 2013

New Customer Rates for MA Electric Customers

Existing Customer Rates for MA Electric Customers

New customer rates for December are still competitive at the 12 month fixed rate plans for Everyday Green: 7.79 cents for WMECo, 9.79 cents for National Grid, and 7.49 cents for NStar. National Grid customers also have a choice of a 24 month fixed rate at 9.89 cents.

Thinking of switching your current Viridian rate plan? Existing customer rates are still looking good for 12 month fixed plans: 9.49 cents for every utility company under Everyday Green.
