Electricity Supply

Since March 1, 2000, electricity supply has been separated from delivery service. Emera Maine still provides the delivery service, or the "wires" service. This means we continue to maintain and construct the facilities needed to deliver electricity to your home or business.

All customers now can choose to purchase their electricity supply from Competitive Electricity Suppliers. If you don't choose a supplier, you automatically will be assigned the Standard Offer as the source of your electricity supply. Standard Offer is administered by the Maine Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) and Emera Maine simply provides the metering and billing services. Standard Offer pricing is available from either Emera Maine's or the MPUC's website.

You can locate a Supplier either by visiting the MPUC website for the list of licensed suppliers (www.maine.gov/mpuc/) or by contacting Emera Maine and asking them to mail you a list of suppliers. Emera Maine cannot recommend a supplier for you. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the cost of Standard Offer supply to better prepare you to shop for a supplier that best meets your electricity supply requirements.
