CMLP offers Concord Light Broadband Internet service delivered through a dedicated fiber line right to homes or businesses. Broadband service is currently available to 95% of Concord residents and many businesses. CMLP offers consistent, guaranteed speeds throughout the day.
Grid & Substations
CMLP maintains a grid that consists of a Town-owned distribution system with substations, power lines, light poles, and transformers. We operate 3 electric distribution substations. The substation at Forest Ridge is the primary substation which functions as a gateway for all electricity coming into Concord from NSTAR.
From March through July of 2018, residents can purchase advanced air-source and ground-source heat pumps and wood pellet heating systems from installers selected for their high quality work and competitive pricing. These clean heating and cooling technologies can greatly reduce your greenhouse gas emissions, reduce your energy costs, and improve the comfort of your home.
