Whether you’re visiting the state’s 48 parks and historic sites or enjoying the coastal charm of the Atlantic Ocean, Maine offers endless opportunities for those who love the outdoors. As one of the more sparsely populated states (1.3 million residents), the state’s appeal lies in the significant cultural opportunities of Portland (the state capital) and Lewison, next to natural wonders like Acadia National Park. Of course, Maine has made its name with the abundant lobster fishing industry and the freshness of the agriculture, which explains why a staggering 36.7 million tourists visited the state to marvel at its verdant beauty.

Serving the energy needs of more than 600,00 customers central and southern Maine is Central Maine Power Company (CMP).
