The municipal electric utilities choice legislation, will be re-filed in the Massachusetts legislature in the next session in January 2015.
This legislation allows the option for new municipal utilities to replace IOUs (investor owned utilities, like Unitil or NStar) thereby introducing competition.
If cities and towns have the option to form a municipal utility, IOUs will have a strong incentive to provide better quality service and less expensive rates.
