Massachusetts employers pay some of the highest electricity costs in the nation - almost double North Carolina and other competitor states. Those costs impact your ability to compete, putting jobs at risk.
AIM is the only major trade association working to moderate energy costs for employers in legislative, administrative, regulatory and sometimes judicial arenas.

AIM | Energy Debates Must Consider Ratepayers

  • Legislation
  • Department of Public Utilities
  • Legal

The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities controls rate increases that distribution companies receive. AIM is often the only trade association at the table, submitting briefs and testifying. Recent issues include:

  • NSTAR purchase of Cape Wind power - We opposed this contract because it will unnecessarily add billions to the cost of electricity over purchasing other renewable power.
  • NSTAR rate increases.


AIM goes to court when necessary to fight for electricity costs that help the Massachusetts economy grow.

AIM recently sued the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities challenging DPU approval of the anti-consumer National Grid Cape Wind power contract. Though we did not succeed,  we continue to fight to make sure the ratepayers get the best bang for the buck.
