Storm Alert

With the fourth Nor’easter in nearly three weeks right on our door step, we have hundreds of crews positioned across the region should the storm impact our system. Remember to keep safety a priority – before, during and after the storm. Be sure to have a supply of bottled drinking water and canned food handy. Power problems can sometimes interrupt public water supply systems or disable well pumps. It is also a good idea to check on elderly family members, neighbors and others who may need assistance during an outage period.

Your bill doesn’t have to change with the seasons. Take advantage of our programs and solutions to greater control your energy use and monthly bills, year round.

This year weather has been 33% colder than average across Massachusetts.* With this winter shaping up to be one of the coldest in years,  higher energy bills are expected. We can help you plan for increased costs and minimize them when possible. Some quick steps you can take today include:

  • Calibrate your thermostats to ensure accurate readings. Adjust your thermostat depending on the season, and lower the setting any time the building is unoccupied

  • Insulate boilers with an insulating blanket. 

  • Consider establishing a maintenance contract with a vendor to get tune-ups before heating and cooling seasons to further decrease your chance of a breakdown and unnecessary air loss.
