Maine Green Power Program

Maine Green Power allows you to choose clean, local renewable energy for your home or business. Mainers can now match their electric use with green power produced in Maine. It's an easy affordable step that lets you support electricity which matches your values.

How Maine Green Power Works

Residents and businesses that participate in Maine Green Power can match the electricity they use with energy from Maine’s renewable resources, such as solar, wind, hydro and biomass.

When you sign up, you will see an additional line item charge on your monthly utility bill for your participation in Maine Green Power. We match your purchase amount with Renewable Energy Certificates, or RECs. (For more information, please visit the FAQ). Maine’s Public Utilities Commission ensures that your purchase is matched with RECs produced in Maine, so you can be certain that your impact is real and local *[See Disclaimer].

You will continue to receive your electricity as you have in the past, with no interruption in your service.

More information about the benefits of Maine Green Power is available in our FAQ.
