According to WGME, CMP customers in southern and central Maine will see higher rates in 2019.

On Monday, the Maine Public Utilities Commission approved an increase from 7.9 cents to 9 cents per kilowatt hour.  That's a whopping 14% increase.

The average Central Maine Power customer pays $88 per month.  Following the increase, those same customers will pay just over $100 per month!

Start saving those pennies...  Or, just turn the lights off when you leave a room!
