MAINE GREEN POWER TERMS OF SERVICE
Effective April 1, 2016

facilities, through the Maine Green Power Program.
By Order dated April 4, 2016 in Docket No. 2015-00339, the Maine Public Utilities Commission

continue to be delivered via CMP’s or Emera Maine’s distribution network, and CMP or Emera
Maine will continue to send you your monthly bill and provide energy-related emergency
response. Enrolling in the Maine Green Power program does not interfere with your pre-existing
electric service from CMP, Emera Maine or any other provider, and all costs associated with your
purchase under this Maine Green Power Terms of Service (“Agreement”) are in addition to your
standard rates for delivery and generation services. Your Maine Green Power participation does
not change your electric service agreement and you may change your electric service agreement
without altering your Maine Green Power participation.
Renewable Energy Sourcing
When you sign up for Maine Green Power, RECs for Maine Green Power will be sourced from
renewable resourcesin Maine such as hydroelectric, solar, wind, and biomass, as defined in M.R.S.
§3210(2)(C). Maine Green Power will include RECs that meet (a) the Maine Class 1 definition,
2 which includes wind, solar, and biomass from “new” or refurbished post September 1, 2005
facilities; or (b) the Maine Class 2 definition, see M.R.S. §3210(2)(B-4). Over the course of any
calendar year for which you are enrolled, RECs generated during that calendar year, the six month
prior to that calendar year, or three months following that calendar year will be delivered on your
behalf to fully equal the total number of RECs that you purchased.
If the Weighted Average Price of Maine located RECs is greater than $6.50/REC; then 3Degrees
may supply RECs from NEPOOL-registered resources outside of Maine. If the weighted average
price of program eligible, NEPOOL located RECs is greater than $6.50/REC; then, subject to
MPUC approval, REC supply may be procured from any state that contains a portion of the PJM
