MassMEC Initiative, Old Baker Chocolate Factory, One Adams Street, Milton MA, (888) 763-2759



The MassMEC (Manufacturing Energy Collaboration) is a new initiative created to decrease the energy bills of commercial, industrial, and municipal entities within the state. MassMEC combines the energy usage of many companies into buying groups, then negotiates volume rates with the power supply companies so businesses can save on energy. Buying in bulk can reduce a company’s electricity and natural gas costs. The initiative provides businesses with a trusted resource to:

– Ensure your business is paying the lowest available electricity and natural gas supply costs

– Avoid paying sales tax on utilities unnecessarily when eligible for exemption

– Save money on energy efficiency upgrades by leveraging available state and utility incentives

– Explore and evaluate onsite solar, community solar, onsite battery storage, electric vehicle charging, and other energy-related projects

By placing businesses into groups with similar energy needs, aspects such as rate class, load factor, capacity, and location can be used to determine with whom a company is best grouped. EarlyBird Power, the licensed energy company that was selected by MassDevelopment to manage the program, then negotiates on behalf of MassMEC with qualified power suppliers in the region for the lowest available market price. It’s easy to see how this kind of competition and forward planning can create fantastic energy pricing for companies. To participate and get started (as long as your business has at least one electricity and/or natural gas utility account), email one recent utility bill for each electricity and/or natural gas account to:
