If the account has been paid on time for every bill over a two year period, the deposit will be returned. Otherwise, the deposit is kept until service is terminated and at that time, the final bill will be deducted from the deposit and you will be billed/refunded for the remainder.

You can call us for more information or request an audit through Energy New England by calling 1 (888) 772-4242.
PURCHASED POWER ADJUSTMENT:
The Power Cost Adjustment is used to compensate for the fluctuating cost that MELD pays for power. Your PPA charge or credit (-) is calculated by multiplying the usage figure by the current month's PPA rate.
