MMWEC is subject to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, found at Chapter 66, Section 10 of the Massachusetts General Laws, which applies to records made or received by Massachusetts governmental entities. Unless the requested records fall under an exemption to the Law, the responsive documents must be made available to the requester. Under MMWEC’s enabling legislation, Chapter 775 of the Acts of 1975, MMWEC is not obligated to disclose trade secrets or commercial or financial information if the corporation determines that such disclosure would adversely affect its ability to conduct business in relation to other suppliers of electric power and energy.
