Energy Efficiency & Conservation
WMLP has partnered with Energy New England to help Wellesley reach its residential energy efficiency goals. An energy assessment will help you learn where you are using energy and what you can do to lower that usage. Less usage equals less money and also reduces your carbon footprint.

Where Does My Money Go?
One of the first things to determine is how much energy do I use? EnergyStar answers the question "Where does my money go?" with this graph. By looking at where energy dollars go in the average household you can begin to focus on making improvements in certain areas to help you save energy and dollars.
By looking at your most recent electric bill you can see how many kilowatts you used each month for the past thirteen months. Ask yourself if your charges are in line with what you used this month last year. If it has increased could it be because an appliance is breaking down and it is taking more energy to operate? Or are your conservation efforts working and you can see a reduction?
The average household in Wellesley uses over 990 kWh per month. The average Massachusetts (non-electric heating) household uses just over 550 kWh. How do you compare?
You are eligible to have an energy assessment completed, every two years. Once the assessment is complete, you'll want to begin to implement the items suggested for improvement.
