• Your ally in energy management

    Maine PowerOptions is an energy-purchasing consortium that serves as an aggregator for Maine’s public and non-profit organizations.

    Our group-purchasing programs are designed to increase the buying power of eligible member organizations for the purchase of fuel oil, electricity supply, and other energy services, regardless of their size.

    The result is that Maine’s municipalities, non-profit organizations, education institutions, health care organizations, water, sewer, and school districts can have greater control over their energy sources and costs.

    Maine PowerOptions was founded in 1999 and is co-sponsored by the Maine Health and Higher Educational Facilities Authority and the Maine Municipal Bond Bank.
