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.
