Municipal Light Board

The people of South Hadley own SHELD: the Light Board is
your elected representation.

The Power Is In Your Hands

A municipal utility like South Hadley Electric Light Department responds directly to the needs and input of local residents, not of anonymous shareholders. The Light Board is a group of five local citizens elected by the voters of South Hadley.

Open and Accountable

The Light Board sets utility policy, and oversees SHELD’s operations through the department’s Manager. As local elected officials, the Light Board is open to the input of South Hadley’s residents and business owners.

Light Board meetings are open to the public — your involvement is welcomed! Meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of the month in the Selectboard Meeting Room at 116 Main Street (Town Hall) and start promptly at 6:00pm. Call our office for agenda information and to confirm meeting dates, times, and locations. Agendas are also posted to the town’s website at least 48 hours prior to the meeting.
