A proposed natural gas pipeline and the recently announced sale of Central Maine
A proposed natural gas pipeline and the recently announced sale of Central Maine Power Co.'s generating facilities to Florida Light & Power makes it likely Maine will become an exporter of electricity. State utility regulators are aware of at least eight proposals to construct natural gas generating plants in Maine, two of them coming from FP&L. The proposal facilities are in Veazie, Jay, Rumford, Wiscasset, Gorham, Westbrook and Yarmouth, and would have a total combined capacity of 4,500 megawatts, or 2.5 times the peak demand for electricity in the state. Michael Yackira of FP&L said the market for the power FP&L will generate in Maine is all of New England. Details.
