The Natural Resources Defense Council has issued a report called "Risky Business: Hidden Environmental Liabilities of Power Plant Ownership." The report uses a ratio of electricity revenues to tons of carbon dioxide emissions to determine which utilities have the lowest emissions per dollar of revenue. Central Maine Power Co. (CMP) had the third lowest financial risk of the 119 utilities listed in the survey. Conrad Schneider of the Natural Resources Council of Maine noted that the study does not consider CMP's reliance on nuclear power. CMP typically acquires around 25 percent of its electricity from nuclear power, 15 percent from hydroelectric facilities, 10 to 15 percent from oil-burning plants, 10 percent from Canada and 40 percent from non-utility generators such as coal- and wood-burning facilities.
