Peabody Municipal Light Plant

Mission of PMLP

Peabody Municipal Light Plant’s (PMLP) mission is to sustain highly reliable electric service at reasonable rates and provide superior customer service while enhancing the quality of life and assuring a clean and healthy environment. PMLP serves more than 26,000 customers in all of Peabody and South Lynnfield.  The organization consists of the ratepayers of Peabody, who elect the Peabody Municipal Lighting Commission (PMLC), a five member policy making board. The Plant’s Manager reports to the Commission and is responsible for the operation of the plant.  A professional staff of approximately 75 employees brings a broad scope of utility experience to PMLP’s daily operation, including an up-to-date understanding of the progressing energy market.

PMLP is committed to contributing to the communities it serves through consistent reinvestment in our infrastructure, payment in-lieu of taxes, community development and energy education programs. This includes energy conservation programs, school energy awareness, conservation and safety projects, school-to-work partnerships, outreach to senior groups, community support and active participation in the area’s Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis Club, TRIAD and other local civic groups.

 In order to start/stop/transfer service, commercial and industrial customers should stop by the office or call at least a week in advance to complete your paperwork.  A deposit is required. The Non-Resident Service Agreement can be downloaded here.
