Billing & Payments
Billing for Electricity, Water & Sewer
The WMLP issues utility bills for electricity, water and sewer each month. The Town is split into five (5) sections with meters being read throughout the month. Bills are due 30 days from the bill date but a early payment discount is offered on the electric portion of your bill, if paid within 15 days of the bill issue date.
If you would like to receive you utility bill via email each month, please send an email to email@example.com and just type "sign-up for ebill" in the subject line and Joanna will enroll you. You may end your enrollment at any time.
WMLP continues to have rates significantly lower than those offered in our neighboring Towns. Currently, rates in Newton, Needham, Weston and Natick are over 45% higher than the average $0.135 per kilowatt hour offered in Wellesley.
Your utility bill will include the past thirteen months of electric and inside water usage. This will help you to see your usage trends. Typically electric usage peaks in July or August when your air-conditioning is running (depending on the weather) and then during the winter cold snaps when our furnace/boiler is running more than usual. The lowest months are usually April and October - when we don't need heat or air-conditioning and we're not using as many lights.
The average electric consumption in Massachusetts is 550 kWh's while the average in Wellesley is over 975 kWh. See our Conservation webpage for help to lower your consumption and costs.
