Customer Information

HMLP requires all Customers who are renters to pay a security deposit equal to 3X the highest bill of the prior 12-month timeframe. Once we receive your application, we will respond with an email stating the amount of your security deposit. The deposit must be received before service can be started in your name.
Interest at the current State Statute (M.G.L. ch. 164, Section 58A) prescribed rate will be paid on such deposit. The deposit is kept until service is terminated and at that time the final bill will be deducted from the deposit and you will be billed/refunded for the remainder.
