Living in America’s most forested state is incredibly special, but it also presents challenges. CMP is building a stronger safer grid for Maine. We have invested $3 billion to improve our infrastructure over the last decade – ensuring that Mainers can power on.
- New, stronger power lines that resist fallen trees and branches
- New, sturdier poles that weather Maine’s toughest storms
- New animal guards to keep Maine’s wildlife safe and prevent outages
- Tree care plans to mitigate damage
- New automation to reduce outage impacts
We're making improvements to better serve our communities

Distributed and Community Generation
CMP works with small and large distributed generators to connect their facilities to our energy grid. Many CMP customers are subscribing to renewable energy programs, including community solar generation, a form of distributed generation. CMP does not develop DG projects. We are committed to interconnecting the generators while ensuring a safe, reliable energy delivery grid for our customers. Learn more about CMP’s role in DG on the links below.
