Maine Green Power allows Maine electric customers to choose clean, local renewable energy for their home or business. The program allows Mainers to match their electric use with green power produced in Maine.
The Maine Green Power Program is currently closed to new participants, however, all customers who were enrolled prior to March 31st, 2021 will continue to be enrolled and billed by their utility for the blocks purchased.
How Maine Green Power Works
Residents and businesses enrolled in Maine Green Power can match the electricity they use with energy from Maine’s renewable resources, such as solar, wind, hydro and biomass.
Participants will see an additional line item charge on their monthly utility bill for participating in Maine Green Power. The Maine Green Power Program matches the purchase amount with Renewable Energy Certificates, or RECs, that are produced in Maine. *[See Disclaimer]
