Electric Service
Welcome to Concord Light

Your utility
CMLP is a community-owned electric utility, founded for and by the citizens of Concord in 1898. When creating this municipal utility, the idea was that local control would mean better utility service and lower rates.

For 117 years, we have provided reliable and reasonably-priced service in a responsive and thoughtful manner.

The Town Manager appoints a five-member advisory Light Board made up of citizens. The Board meets monthly to discuss topics such as rates, power supply and renewable energy options; and the Board encourages citizens to attend.

CMLP operates as a completely self-sustaining, non-profit, Enterprise Fund within the Town government. No property tax money is required or used to operate the Light Plant. All operating expenses, capital investments, and debt service are paid from electric revenues.

In addition, the Light Plant contributes to the Town via a Payment-in-Lieu-of Taxes (PILOT). This is the equal amount of property taxes that would be paid by an equivalent, but non-municipal, electric utility. CMLP made a payment-in-lieu-of taxes of $477,600 for 2015.
