Programs for Small Solar, Community and Other Renewable Energy Projects

BACKGROUND

In 2019, the Maine Legislature passed legislation to encourage the development of solar and other small renewable energy projects in the State.  Programs are available that provide opportunities for both residential and non-residential customers to participate in these projects, including ones that allow customers to share the costs and benefits of small solar or other types of renewable energy, sometimes referred to as “Community” projects.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THESE PROGRAMS

There are two programs available for small solar and other renewable energy projects.  Within each program, there are structured opportunities for both residential and non-residential customers.
