MELD POWER SOURCES

Henry Tragert Town Common, Middleton, MA

Keeping Rates Down by Diversifying

MELD is environmentally-conscious—not just to keep electricity rates down—but to make less of a carbon footprint on our planet. We diversify the sources from which we purchase electricity. Hydro. Wind. Solar. Nuclear. MELD even has a hybrid truck. It was the first of any electric light company in the state.
