Marblehead Municipal Light Department
"Owned by the People We Serve!"
Since 1894 when town voted to authorize the formation of its own municipal light department, MMLD has been providing modern electric power to the citizens and businesses of Marblehead. Many upgrades have been instituted over the years, including the latest Smart Meter technology, downtown underground utilities, substation construction and much more. Read more here.
MMLD's Light Commission, our governing body, holds regularly scheduled meetings in the Conference Room at 40 Tioga Way, #350. Dates and times of the meetings are posted on our website.

We're proud to be your electric light utility. MMLD is a municipally-owned electric company that has been totally independent from large regional electric companies since 1894. We're "consumer-owned" and the citizens of Marblehead are our stockholders. It's a win-win for homes and businesses in many, many ways.
Over 120 years ago, citizens and businesspeople with vision struck a choice for independence. Like all great Yankees, our town went the independent route and chose to provide Marblehead with electricity through our own utility...instead of outsourcing this essential responsibility to a private entity that would be out of their control.
Marblehead Municipal Light Department is a "MUNI", one of only a few hundred in the entire country. And it has paid dividends in so many ways to our customers. Click here to learn more about the advantages of having a "MUNI" in your community.
In 2015, MMLD was the recipient of the MMWEC Energy Efficiency Program Award for Best Website/Social Media! Read all about it here...
