If you are selling your property you or your agent need to either submit the request below or call to schedule an appointment for a final reading of all of your meters. Electric, Water and Sewer meter reads will be needed for your passing of papers. The "final bill" will be ready for you to pick up and pay the next business day after the reading is completed or it can be emailed to you or your attorney. There is a $30 per meter fee for all final water readings.

Final Readings are scheduled in two windows of time. You may select either 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. or Noon until 2 p.m.

Please have the following ready when you call to schedule the Final meter readings:
  • Property Address of Final Reading
  • The Date of the Final reading (keep in mind that the bill will not be ready until the next business day after the reading was completed)
  • The Date of the Closing
  • Forwarding Address of the Customer Moving Out
  • Name(s) of New Customers Moving In
Final readings will not be scheduled without all of the information. Please call seven to ten (7 to 10) days ahead of the closing and only once the closing date is firm.

Move in


Welcome to your new home. Electric, water and sewer service is supplied to your home by the Town-owned, Wellesley Municipal Light Plant and Department of Public Works. Your utilities will be billed monthly on a single bill by the Municipal Light Plant. The utility account will be set up by the seller or their agent and is set up in order to meet your mortgage company requirements of when they need the paperwork. Your name will appear on your utility bill as it does on your real estate tax bill, which means if the home is in a trust, the utilities will also be in the name of the trust.

The Customer Service department will send you a packet of information a few weeks after your account is established and should you have any questions please call the Customer Service department at 781-235-7600.
