MPO Renews Deal with Constellation

Maine PowerOptions (MPO) announced that it has renewed its service agreement with Constellation NewEnergy. The consortium serves as an electric power aggregator for Maine’s local governmental and non-profit organizations and is sponsored by the Maine Municipal Bond Bank and Maine Health and Higher Educational Facilities Authority.

As part of the negotiated agreement with Constellation, MPO members will have access to a wide array of electricity services including supply options, renewable energy solutions and demand response programs that compensate participants for using less energy when regional power grids are under stress. Constellation provides more than 100 megawatts of load to members including cities, towns, schools, universities and health care institutions.

“Our collaboration with Constellation NewEnergy allows us to provide value to our members,” said Mary Lou Gallup, program officer for MPO. “As energy markets grow increasingly volatile, we’re offering our members increased market education and support, as well as access to cost efficient electricity supply services.”
