Where does your electricity come from?
If you are a Mainer, you would probably answer CMP or Bangor Hydro as these are the two primary utility companies in Maine. Those two companies deliver your electricity to you as well as maintain the power lines and deal with your power outages.
But where do they get the power from?
Once a year the Maine Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) looks for a company to supply electricity to the utilities so they can get it to you. The company that comes in with the lowest rate will be chosen as that utilities Standard Offer.
Did you know you have the choice on who your electricity supplier will be?
The residents of Maine can choose to have their electricity supply come from a Competitive Energy Provider such as Electricity Maine.
Licensed by the public PUC to sell electricity to homeowners and small businesses, Electricity Maine is part of the Provider Power family (along with ENH Power in New Hampshire). Their mission is to strengthen communities by providing residents with an option to save money on the supply portion of their utility bills while partnering with, and providing resources to, non-profit organizations that create positive change in Maine and New Hampshire.
CMP or Bangor Hydro will continue to deliver your electricity, maintain the lines, restore your power when it is out, and send you the same bill.
Join the nearly two hundred thousand Maine residents who have already switched and decided to buy local and support local organizations.
