416 BUSINESS VIEW MAGAZINE DECEMBER 2020 PREFERRED VENDORS n Mansfield Municipal Electric Department Mansfield Electric was founded by the local community to provide low cost and reliable power. In 1903, on a plot of land on West Church Street, two 150-horsepower American Diesel engines were housed in a brick building to electrify 345 street lights. Thus, the Mansfield Municipal Electric Department (MMED) was born. Today, over 117 years later, MMED is still governed and operated by those in the community by being one of 41 public power electric utilities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. As a publicly owned utility, MMED’s focus is always to provide affordable and reliable electric service for the people and businesses in Mansfield. Thus, we are proudly and consistently ranked with one of the lowest electric rates in the state. Mansfield Electric is also one of most reliable power utilities in the nation. Consistently recognized as one of the top 12% of the 2,000+ public power utilities in the nation to earn the prestigious Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3) designation from the American Public Power Association (APPA), Mansfield Electric provides the highest degree of electric service based on four important disciplines: Reliability, Safety, Workforce Development and System Improvement. For over a century, the mission of Mansfield Electric has always been to deliver affordable & reliable public power to its customers.
