TMLP is proud to offer our ‘Go Green 100%’ program. This program was designed specifically for our customers who want their electricity to come from 100% renewable energy sources, accomplished through the purchase and retirement of Massachusetts Class 1 Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs).

Once a customer voluntarily signs up for this new program, TMLP will purchase and retire the qualifying Mass Class 1 RECs to meet this customer’s electricity needs. The renewable energy source for this new voluntary electricity program will be guaranteed through the purchase and retirement of these Mass Class 1 RECs. Visit TMLP’s Go Green 100% program page for program details and requirements.


Maintaining energy efficiency is of paramount importance for Commercial and Industrial customers in this world of tight budget constraints and skyrocketing costs. In partnership with Energy New England (ENE), a leader in energy resource evaluations, TMLP will schedule an initial “walk through” or Preliminary Facility Evaluation (PFE) audit to identify energy savings opportunities, free of charge.

If our Customer requests a more comprehensive “investment grade” engineering audit, TMLP may reimburse the customer for 50% or more of the audit cost, provided certain recommended measures have been implemented.

These Industrial energy conservation evaluations will be performed on-site and shall identify major energy uses, such as lighting, HVAC, and other electrical systems. A summary report outlining the potential energy (kWh) savings, economic savings, and payback on investment will be given to our customer.

To schedule an assessment, contact ENE at 1-888-772-4242 or email commercial@ene.org.
