MPUC Issues RFP for Electricity Supply Service
September 12, 2012
Augusta, Maine – Today, the Maine Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) issued a Request for Proposals for electricity supply service for residential and small commercial customers in the territories of Central Maine Power (CMP) and Bangor Hydro Electric (BHE). The term of service begins March 1, 2013. The Commission is seeking proposals for traditional standard offer service and, for CMP customers, a new, optional time-of-use pricing service.
Initial proposals with indicative bid prices are due on October 4, 2012.
CMP and BHE are electric transmission and distribution utilities serving customers in southern, central and eastern Maine. Total electricity sales to their residential and small commercial customers are about 4.8 million megawatt hours annually, of which about 75% currently receives standard offer service.
The RFP and related materials are available on the MPUC website at: http://www.maine.gov/mpuc/industries/electricity/standardoffer/sosolicitations.html
Background: Maine law requires the MPUC to arrange for standard offer service though a competitive bid process, and to ensure that standard offer service is available to all customers in Maine. Customers receive standard offer service by default if they have not purchased supply from another electricity supplier.
Specific inquiries regarding the RFP should be directed to Faith Huntington at email@example.com
The Maine Public Utilities Commission regulates electric, telephone, water and gas utilities to ensure that Maine citizens have access to safe and reliable utility service at rates that are just and reasonable for all ratepayers. Commission programs include Maine Enhanced 911 Service and Dig Safe.
