How and when we use electricity impacts the costs that are borne by all ratepayers through elements such as HMLP’s capacity and transmission charges. The number and kind of load changes expected in the future make it advisable for HMLP to take an active role in both planning for new behaviors and incentivizing behaviors that will assist in managing expected changes to the demand curve.
Pursuant to the phased rate increase that was approved on May 2, 2023 to cover increasing operation costs, energy costs, and HEIRP as approved by Town Meeting, rates will be going up on February 1st and visible on the February 29th bill. Please visit contact HMLP at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 781-749-0134 if you require assistance paying your bill.
