Home » Maine's Green Power Menu Search

The Maine Green Power Menu lists green power providers offering products to Maine customers. Our menu helps you to compare each product in the following terms:

Company
This is the company that offers the product.

Form
Green power comes in two primary forms: supply and certificates.

Eligibility
Some products are only available to certain types of customers, for example non-profits only or medium and larger customers only. Others are limited by the amount of the product available.

Certified
Some products are certified by third parties.

Sources
Green power is electricity generated from a variety of environmentally superior energy sources. Generators may be located in Maine or elsewhere.

Price
You choose how to pay for green power. If you choose a supply product, you pay for it through your utility bill based on how many kilowatt-hours you consume. If you choose a certificate product, you pay for it in blocks based on how much green electricity you want to be generated. In the Menu, prices are provided for both blocks and per kilowatt-hour for comparison shopping.
