Energy Assistance available to nonprofits

Friday, July 28, 2023

Did you know that all of our members are eligible to use the energy procurement services of Maine PowerOptions?

Maine PowerOptions (MPO) is an energy-purchasing consortium that serves as an energy aggregator and educational service for Maine's public, governmental and non-profit organizations.

Their group-purchasing programs are designed to pool and increase the buying power of member organizations for the purchase of fuel oil, electricity supply and related services.

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.

Membership and participation are voluntary and come at little or no cost to the members.

Individualized energy consultation is also available for members at no cost.

MPO hosts monthly, educational webinars on timely energy topics and produces an e-newsletter for members that includes grant and other funding opportunities available to its members.

Maine PowerOptions is a program co-sponsored by the Maine Health and Higher Educational Facilities Authority and the Maine Municipal Bond Bank.

Please contact Kay Mann, Program Manager at 207-620-1469 or Terry Bailey, Program Assistant at 621-0744 for membership information, or visit the MPO website.
