RMLD reserves the right to modify or terminate RMLD Rebate Programs without prior notice based on the availability of funds and other relevant factors.

As a municipal electric utility, RMLD operates its own rebate program that is separate from privately owned electric utility rebates offered by Mass Save. As such, RMLD customers are solely eligible for electricity related rebates offered by RMLD. RMLD customers that are served by a Mass Save participating natural gas provider may be eligible for natural gas specific rebates from Mass Save.
