New England ratepayers deserve a new, affordable clean energy option. Central Maine Power’s New England Clean Energy Connect will deliver tens of millions of dollars in annual cost savings to Maine and Massachusetts consumers – all while meeting greenhouse gas reduction targets.
New England Clean Energy Connect interconnects at Central Maine Power's Lewiston substation, one of the newest and strongest points in the New England Energy System. Central Maine Power completed a $1.4 billion upgrade to ensure reliable delivery of clean energy resources - on time and under budget.
The development of clean energy and respect for our environment serve as the pillars for New England Clean Energy Connect's energy production model.
