Community Solar Updates for Central Maine Power

Garden News



Welcome to the Central Maine Power community solar farm update blog. With your membership, you’re saying yes to renewable energy in your neighborhood. Our developers are in the process of constructing multiple gardens at once. Memberships like yours help us grow and bring more savings and support of clean, local energy to your neighborhood.

The three main steps to building a community solar farm:

  • Construction started
  • Solar panels installed
  • Power grid connected

All of these steps need to take place before savings can begin.

Communities Served by Join Solar

Solar energy produced by Join Solar’s community solar farms will provide clean energy to the following communities within Versant Power – Bangor Hydro District area which includes: 

  • Central Maine Power (CMP), a subsidiary of AVANGRID, serves approximately 646,000 electricity customers in an 11,000-square-mile service area in central and southern Maine.
