FOR YOUR HOME

Maine Green Power for Your Home

The average home in Maine uses 530 kWh of electricity per month — often generated by traditional fossil fuels that cause greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental pollutants. Let’s break this down: That’s roughly 300 pounds of pollution from electricity every month — equivalent to driving your car for 328 miles!

Thanks to Maine Green Power, 530 kWh of power can be generated with less pollution. Using low-emission renewable energy made in Maine, the program lets you match your home’s electricity use with clean energy — without contracts or installation hassles. When you enroll, you’ll pay a little more on your monthly electricity bill while you continue to receive your electricity without any interruption in service. And, you can cancel at any time without penalty. Easy, right?
