Happy Earth Day from the Hingham Municipal Light Plant! 🌎

In pursuit of a sustainable future, we cannot take our resources for granted. We'd like to share a quote from Aldo Leopold, an environmental philosopher, scientist, conservationist, and author who crafted the land ethic (see the first image).

From HMLP’s perspective, understanding where your heat and electricity comes from is a critical piece of moving towards a net-zero world. That is why HMLP is currently carbon-neutral and strives to be carbon-free in the future. You can view our power supply portfolio online: www.hmlp.com/about-hingham-municipal-lighting-plant/energy-supply-portfolio/

A big part of our mission to achieve 100% carbon-free energy is to make efficiency & electrification accessible and fortify reliability for our ratepayers. See what incentives are available on our website: www.hmlp.com/rebates/

And we believe that communication with our customers is the key to meeting our common goals. You can always reach out to us with questions, comments, or concerns regarding our sustainability programs. Get in touch with our Sustainability Coordinator at www.hmlp.com/sustainability/#contact

KENNEDY LAW OFFICE Appreciates the efforts of HMLP

The kids actually had to talk to us after school today. Can you shut the power off everyday at around 3?

Only a 0:21:53 downtime. That was super-fast in my opinion. Good job and thank you. Unfortunately, it was so fast I had to login back to work and finish the day.

It went on while I was on the phone with the office!! Thank you for doing such excellent work!!

πŸ”Œ Great news for Hingham πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒThe South Shore has been awarded $344,000 to install eight new electric vehicle charging ports. The Hingham Municipal Light Plant will receive four ports, the Blink Network in Norwell will receive two ports, and CCO Holdings in Scituate will receive two ports. All of the charging stations will be publicly accessible.

This technology is readily available, and it is important that Massachusetts take steps like this so residents can feel secure in their decision to move towards electric vehicles. I appreciate the efforts made by the Baker-Polito Administration and MassDEP to expand charging options throughout the South Shore.

We're getting a compost bin at HMLP! Who is going to join us? The Hingham DPW is offering compost bins for $25, 50% off the retail price. To obtain a discounted compost bin, please contact the DPW at (781) 741-1430. To learn more about composting, go to: https://www.hingham-ma.gov/906/Compost

Instruct your children to stay away from utility substation fences and pad-mounted transformers. If you see a substation fence or transformer cabinet that has been vandalized, call us immediately. Teach children to look for DANGER signs displayed on all high voltage equipment.

It's time to decarbonize the way we heat our homes. Based on your current heating fuel, you are eligible for rebates from the Hingham Municipal Light Plant or Mass Save! Go to https://www.hmlp.com/rebates/heat-pump-rebates to learn more or call us at 781-749-0134.

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.

Keep clear of power lines. When power lines are nearby, use wooden or fiberglass ladders near metal. Never place a ladder or antenna where it can fall or come into contact with overhead lines. Keep children's swing sets and tree houses away from power lines.

Happy Earth Day from the Hingham Municipal Light Plant!

Save money, time, and carbon with an electric vehicle (EV). Take advantage of HMLP incentives and switch from gasoline to electricity. Compared to gasoline vehicles, EVs are less costly to operate and maintenance is cheaper and simpler.

More info online: https://hmlp-ev.ene.org/

The advantages of purchasing an ENERGY STAR appliance:

Potential savings in energy costs of 15 - 50%
Reduction of global energy consumption and need for additional generation
Decrease in pollution from fossil fuels used to generate electricity

Rebate: https://plus.anbetrack.com/ene/#/Utility

HMLP is pleased to offer customers rebates on selected ENERGY STAR refrigerators, clothes washers, dehumidifiers, heat pumps, and programmable/smart thermostats. The DOE defines ENERGY STAR appliances as being significantly more energy-efficient than average comparable models.

Yesterday we lost a transmission line coming into the Town and a significant portion of Hingham customers had lost power. This map shows the effect that losing one transmission line had on our system. Power has been restored at this time to all customers. Thank you for your patience as we diagnosed the situation and worked to bring everyone back up. ...

We've received multiple reports of scam calls to our customers pretending to be the Light Plant and claiming that the customer's power will be shut off without immediate payments. These calls are NOT coming from the Light Plant. DO NOT give out any personal information over the phone.

Please pass this information along to your friends and relatives in Hingham, and stay vigilant! If you have a concern regarding your electric service, you can call us at the Light Plant directly at 781-749-1396 or email our customer service department at customerservice@hmlp.com.

Have you seen the large orange trucks driving around Hingham? Our crews are consistently working to maintain a safe and reliable electric system for our customers. If you see us around town, give us a wave!
