West Boylston Municipal Light Plant

The Electric Light Dept for West Boylston, MA


For over a century, West Boylston Municipal Light Plant (WBMLP) has provided citizens and businesses of West Boylston, MA with dependable electric power. WBMLP is a "municipal light plant". And that gives our town lots of benefits that municipalities who get power from the big companies, don't get.

  • Better dependability, reliability and overall economy.
  • Local ownership. Owned by the citizens of West Boylston.
  • Negotiating power. We negotiate and buy longterm power supplies from a diverse, balanced range of resources. That means customers get better electric rates.
  • Quicker. If the power goes out, WBMLP's crews are right here in town, and can reach and repair problems in minutes, instead of hours.

THINK "ELECTRIFICATION" & SAVE MONEY

WBMLP DRIVE ELECTRIC EARTH DAY POSTER

Switching from the fossil fuels used to heat and cool our buildings and power our vehicles is called "electrification". Because West Boylston’s Energy Supply is already mostly clean and our electricity rates are so low—electrification will lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reduce your operating costs.

WBMLP is planning to eliminate all GHG emissions from our power supply by 2050. You should prepare too. Review the tips on our Electrification Infographic when replacing or upgrading major appliances and vehicles beginning now. Be ready for the future.

Learn more by by visiting our two new website pages: Electrification in West Boylston and Electriification in Massachusetts. Remember, on a cost-per-BTU basis, WBMLP electric power is less expensive to operate than natural gas, oil and propane!
