  1. Holyokers tied to municipal utility, whose rates are lower, despite mailing from Connecticut company: James Lavelle

    Only two others&apos monthy rates were lower than Holyoke&aposs in a comparison of 42 electricity providers. HOLYOKE -- Some households here received a flier in the mail this week from a company called Viridian Energy promising rate-savings, but residents are locked into getting electricity from the Holyoke Gas and Electric Department. The ability to choose electricity providers is prohibited under the state law (Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 16A, Section 47A) that makes municipal utilities exempt from "competitive choice of generation supply." In any case, said James M. Lavelle, manager of the Holyoke Gas and Electric Department (HGE), the average monthly electricity bills of households in cities and towns with municipal utilities generally are lower than those who get power from investor-owned utilities like Western Massachusetts Electric Co. (WMECO). "We're not getting too many people asking us to open the borders, to open up the competition with retail providers that will charge more," Lavelle said. The flier from Viridian of Stamford, Connecticut was aimed at WMECO customers and apparently part of a mass mailing received by residents here and in Easthampton and other communities. The average household's electricity bill in December here was $88.08. That's based on a household using 750 kilowatt hours a month at 11.74 cents an hour; or, to do the math, divide $88.08 by 750, arriving at 0.11744 and moving the decimal point two spaces to the right, Lavelle said.
