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.
