SCAM ALERT: Fraudulent Phone Calls

Please do not fall for this type of call. Groton Electric Light would contact you via mail if there were an issue and never demand payment over the phone.

If you have fallen victim to this type of call, please contact the Groton Police Department at (978) 448-5555.
