About Us

For over a century, Ashburnham Municipal Light Plant has been providing superior and dependable electric service to our town.

We're always on call to keep your family safe, warm and secure. We're an independent electric utility and owned by Ashburnham and its citizens. Every dollar is devoted to public purposes in one way or another - either for system improvement, debt retirement or the community. AMLP serves residents, businesses and Ashburnham's institutions with dependable, affordable electric power.100 Years Contest Art

Here are 5 major benefits you get from local ownership, local management and local control of your electric power:

  • Our profits stay in Ashburnham. AMLP employees are local people. We pay business taxes. Our operation is lean and mean.

    Ashburnham Municipal Light Plant is one of only about 2,000 community-owned electric utilities in the USA. We serve the entire town of Ashburnham and a population of almost 7,000. (We also provide service to some customers in Winchendon, Gardner and Westminster).


As a publicly owned power company, AMLP returns profits to the community annually. That money helps fund town services such as Fire, Police, EMS, Parks, and the Library. Our utility has provided thousands of dollars in dividends to Ashburnham since its inception.

We do not generate our own electricity.Ashburnham Municipal Light Plant sign photo Instead, we strategically purchase it from national traditional and renewable energy wholesalers like the Berkshire Wind Coop. AMLP's power generation mix includes renewable energy sources, as well as nuclear, coal and natural gas. We do not depend on any one supplier or type– making it easier to keep the lights on for you.

AMLP has a Renewable Energy Program, begun in 2011. We erected power generation wind towers in the northeast part of Ashburnham. There's a solar power project in the south part of town.
