Application for Service
Any Customer whose premises may be served from suitable existing distribution lines of the HMLP without the installation of an intermediate pole can obtain electric service by mail application or by personal application at the HMLP office; however a “Start Service Form” needs to be completed.
HMLP will provide service under one of the DPU approved Rate Classifications. The Customer shall pay all bills rendered in accordance with the rate structure or as otherwise provided for in this Schedule.
The HMLP will endeavor to assist a Customer in the selection of the available Rate Classification most favorable to the Customer’s requirement, but does not make any warranty, expressed or implied, as to the rates, classifications or provisions favorable to the present or future service requirement of the Customer.
Electric service will be supplied by HMLP subject to the provisions of orders, amendments and interpretations thereof of any State or Federal body having authority or jurisdiction over such service, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the rules and regulations and the terms and conditions of service as set forth in HMLP Rate Classifications or this Schedule. In addition new Customers shall generally not be turned on after 3:00PM but must sign up and be turned on after 8:00AM the next business day.
Customers that have been turned off because of non-payment will not be turned on by the Standby Person unless there are unusual circumstances. They should be informed they will be turned on after 7:00AM on the next business day.
If you are moving within Hingham, the balance on existing account must be paid in full before service will be established in a new location. To discontinue service at your current Hingham location please complete a ‘”Stop Service”‘ form.
