Beware of Energy Offers Says Board Chairman
Selectman Rich Malagrifa said no company can back up a claim to have the lowest electric rate because the state has yet to give rate approvals.
Board of Selectmen Chairman Richard Malagrifa is warning residents about salesmen claiming that their companies can lower a resident's energy bills.
"They can't say that because the energy aggregation rate has not been set (for Swampscott) by the state," he said at last week's selectmen's meeting.
He said several salesmen had come to his home making that claim.
He said he has told the salespeople that it is impossible for them to have the lowest rate until the aggregation rate gets approval from state energy officials.
