Maine PowerOptions is an energy-purchasing consortium that serves as an aggregator for Maine's local governmental and non-profit organizations. Our group-purchasing programs are designed to increase the buying power of eligible participant organizations for the purchase of fuel oil and electricity. The result is lower energy costs for Maine's non-profit organizations, higher education institutions, health care organizations, water, sewer, and school districts, and municipalities. Maine PowerOptions is a program co-sponsored by the Maine Health and Higher Educational Facilities Authority and the Maine Municipal Bond Bank.
The purpose of Maine PowerOptions is to bring together or "pool" local governmental and non-profit organizations, analyze their combined energy needs, and negotiate pricing with suppliers to achieve the best value for our member organizations. By joining the Maine PowerOptions aggregation your organization's buying power will be greatly enhanced with all future electricity and fuel oil purchases. The organization is currently comprised of almost 800 member organizations throughout the state. On behalf of our members, we assume all administrative responsibilities associated with energy bids and contract negotiation process with potential suppliers. Competitive pricing offers are then presented to members for consideration and voluntary participation.
