Maine Lawmaker Wants To Have State Authority Assume Ownership Of Utility T&D Assets

May 22,2019



Maine State Rep. Seth Berry, D-Bowdoinham, co-chair of the Legislature’s energy committee, is sponsoring a bill that would create a "customer-owned" state power authority power entity to own the T&D assets of the investor-owned utilities (CMP and Emera), the Bangor Daily News reports

A bill to implement the authority, LD 1646, does not specifically address retail electric choice, or SOS, for customers of such new authority.

However, the bill does provide that the authority may not, "own or operate a generating source or purchase electric capacity or energy from a generating source, except as the commission may approve in order to allow the authority to maintain or improve system reliability."

Such provision ostensibly would mean the current Standard Offer structure would remain in place (in which Standard Offer providers purchase wholesale power and sell at retail)
