The Princeton Municipal Light Department (“PMLD”) has been providing electrical service to residents and
businesses in Princeton for over 100 years. The mission of the Princeton Municipal Light Department is to provide a safe,
reliable, and economical source of electric power for our customers, to acknowledge and implement the need for renewable
energy from within the diversity of available energy sources, and to enhance the benefits of municipal utility ownership
for our customers.  PMLD has its own elected Board of Commissioners, General Manager, and staff that operate separate and
autonomously from the Town of Princeton Selectmen,Town Administrator,and other Town Boards and Committees.

May 8, 2017 -  FLEET VEHICLES FOR SALE BY AUCTION -- The Princeton Municipal Light Department is auctioning off
                             a 2001 Jeep Wrangler Sport and a 2004 Ford F-350 pickup truck to the highest bidder.  Go to

                             you can click on the details about each vehicle and place a bid.  The auction ends on May 22, 2017.     

April 2017 -  The Home Energy Loss Prevention Service (HELPS) program is for all municipal utility customers.
                         The Princeton Municipal Light Department (PMLD) provides Princeton customers with rebates and
                           incentive programs to improve energy efficiency in the home.  To learn more about this year's offers

Feb-May 2017 -  The Princeton Municipal Light Department will be upgrading meters to homes during the last two
                           weeks of the month.  A two-man crew in orange PMLD work shirts and identification will arrive
                          at your home in a white pick-up truck with flashing strobe lights & a blue State license plate
                          between 8 AM and 4 PM, one will knock on your door and identify themselves.  They will not need to
                          enter your home.   If you do not answer the door and greet the crew they will assume no one is home
                          and they will still perform the change-out.  They will be on property at the meter for approximately
                          5-10 minutes.  The power to your home/garage will be off for approximately 10 seconds while the
                          meter is changed out.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the office at
                          978-464-2815 or 978-464-2825.

                           fixutres will be 40-55% more efficient than the HPS fixtures.
