Lowell looks to buy electricity to lower consumer costs

Lowell is looking to tap a state law to help about 30,000 local households and businesses save money on their electric bills.

The city has adopted a plan allowing it to make bulk power purchases for city consumers if it can negotiate rates with suppliers below those charged by Lowell’s regular electricity provider, National Grid.
