Marblehead Municipal Light Department "Owned by the People We Serve!"
The mission of Marblehead Municipal Light Department (MMLD) is to provide reliable power as we work towards a goal of a carbon free portfolio, while maintaining competitive rates in a safe working environment for MMLD employees and its customers.
Since 1894 when town voted to authorize the formation of its own municipal light department, MMLD has been providing modern electric power to the citizens and businesses of Marblehead. Many upgrades have been instituted over the years, including the latest Smart Meter technology, downtown underground utilities, substation construction and much more. Read more here.
MMLD's Light Commission, our governing body, holds regularly scheduled meetings in the Conference Room at Commercial St. Dates and times of the meetings are posted on our website.
