The West Boylston Municipal Light Plant was established
1910 and serves approximately 3,500 residents and businesses
of West Boylston.
During the 1970’s, the Municipal Light Departments obtained the ability to buy wholesale power directly from the Generation source.
The Boylston and West Boylston Light Departments joined together in the construction of the Denton-Lovell Substation on Temple St. West Boylston Light receives power from a variety of sources made up of Hydro, Natural Gas/Oil, and Nuclear Generation.
The Light Plant is also involved with renewable energy alternatives.
We are part of the Berkshire Wind Project, which is a 15MW ten turbine wind farm in the western part of the state, and a Solar Field being developed in West Boylston. The West Boylston Municipal Lighting Plant Board of Commissioners are very much aware of the need to serve the customers of West Boylston with the most reliable and economical power possible. They are also striving to develop alternative resources to lessen our dependency
on fossil fuels.
