Electricity Price Transparency


During its 2012 session, the Legislature enacted An Act To Provide Transparency in Electricity Pricing for Maine Ratepayers (Act).  P.L. 2011, ch. 590.  Section 4 of the Act states:          

The Public Utilities Commission shall develop information useful to electricity ratepayers regarding the costs and effects of state policies on electricity ratepayers. The commission and the Office of the Public Advocate shall post the information on their publicly accessible websites.
