LEARN ABOUT NEW 2024 RATES

Effective January 1, 2024, MMLD customers will see annual adjustments to all metered classes of MMLD's Electric Service Rates. The rate changes are a continuation of our multi-year plan to ensure our rates accurately reflect the findings in our Cost of Service study, undertaken by Utility Financial Solutions LLC, (UFS), a highly reputable, nationally recognized firm located in Holland, Michigan.

We are making these revenue-neutral adjustments with two objectives in mind:

  • (1) Ensure that all customers are billed equitably, based on the cost of the electricity they actually use, and
  • (2) Increase the percent of revenue raised by our fixed monthly Base Rates, while decreasing the variable revenue raised by our variable Electric Rate (kwh usage), to more accurately reflect the mix of our fixed versus variable expenses.

UPDATED RATES WEB PAGE

To help our customers understand their 2024 rates, we've revised our Rates Page.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions by calling us at (781) 631-5600 or send us an email on our Contact Form.

About Marblehead's Electric Department

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. That's a win-win for our town's homes and businesses in many ways.

Marblehead's Old North  Church - Copyright 2015. All rights reserved. Mike Porter

Over 125 years ago, citizens and businesspeople with vision struck a choice for energy 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 the town's (and customers') control.
