About Merrimac Municipal Light Dept.
The Merrimac Municipal Light Department (MMLD) is a municipally owned utility, meaning that is owned by our customers, and has been in operation since 1904. It is our goal to do everything possible to ensure that our service is always at its best. The Municipal Light Department, under the direction of the General Manager, is governed by a 3-member elected Board of Commissioners who hold public meetings on a monthly basis.
The Merrimac Municipal Light Department exists to provide its owner, the Town of Merrimac’s ratepayers, safe and reliable electricity at a reasonable and competitive rate that sustains the healthy operations of the department, and the maintenance, expansion and modernization of the electrical distribution system. This mission will be accomplished by a staff of responsible, dedicated and customer-oriented employees with superior work ethics, skills and professionalism.
TO OUR CUSTOMERS
As a customer of the Municipal Light Department you will receive safe, and reliable electricity as stated in the Mission Statement. For the convenience of our customers, we have several payment options available to you. You can pay online, by going to Unipay to pay your electric bill using a credit card or eCheck.
If you pay your bill by the 15th of the month you receive a 10% discount off your energy portion of your bill. Contact our office to enroll in our secure ACH program, which automatically withdraws your monthly electric bill balance off your bank account, taking one more thing off your mind and allowing you to take advantage of our early payment discount.
Our office opens from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. During off hours, you can leave your payments in our Drop Box on the left corner of our Administration Building.
The MMLD has service personnel available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to serve you should you lose your electrical power or to address any problems with the Town’s electrical distribution system. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to call.

WE’VE GONE GREEN
Merrimac’s Power Supply (stable load growth/loss)
- The figures represent our power purchase for the town
- We also receive 7.5% of our power from the solar field in town
- The COMM wealth of MA legislatively requires that our power we purchase for distribution is 50% carbon free by 2030. By then, Merrimac will be over 50%.
