When you buy a car, you consider not only the price but how much gas the car will need. When you buy appliances, you should also consider how much energy it will take to run them.

Compare the yellow EnergyGuide labels for similar appliances before you buy. They show how much you will spend yearly to operate the appliances. And, they rate the appliances numerically the higher the number, the more efficient the appliance and the less you pay in energy bills.

Remember, an energy-efficient model may cost more, but can pay you back in energy savings down the road. So look for EnergyGuide labels. They help you make the most energy-efficient and economically sound decision.

Expanding our long-standing commitment to energy conservation and the community we serve, the Hingham Municipal Lighting Plant is once again offering residential conservation services to help you conserve energy and enhance your comfort level. These services are designed to help our customers become more enlightened users of our product, and to also identify means to attain greater energy savings.

If you have questions concerning energy conservation, or if you simply have a concern about a specific end-use, such as an appliance, or conservation measure, such as insulation, our Energy Advisor service can assist. Simply call 1-888-772-4242. The call is free, so we encourage you to take advantage of this professional resource. This service is available Monday thru Friday, during business hours, and you will be able to speak with a highly trained -- and totally objective -- Energy Conservation Representative.

A Representative will assist with your energy questions or concerns, and will be happy to send you information on energy conservation as well as tips on how to save energy. If you would like to participate in an energy audit of your residence, the Representative will coordinate that service on your behalf, as well. If requested, a state-certified Energy Advisor will visit your home and compile a comprehensive energy evaluation report. The report will identify the measures you could take to enhance the energy efficiency of your residence and, potentially, ways to reduce your energy costs.
