Starting July 1, 2016, Central Maine Power electricity customers will pay more for grid power.
CMP estimates that the total electricity bill will increase by 4% for small accounts, and 7.6% for medium-sized business accounts. For example, if your current monthly bill is $100, it will increase to $104. If your monthly bill is $1,000, it will increase to $1,076.
Small accounts (peak demand less than 20 kilowatts) will see the following increases:
Medium accounts (peak demand greater than 20 kilowatts but less than 400 kilowatts) will see these increases:
This price increase affects just the delivery portion of electricity bills for customers in CMP’s territory. The cost of the supply portion of the electricity bill depends on whether customers take the standard offer or have a contract with a competitive electricity supplier.
