Renewable Resource Fund


Universities and communities in Maine are researching and developing new ways to produce renewable electricity using resources like wind, water, sun, wood, tides, fuel cells and geothermal technologies. With the Voluntary Renewable Resource Fund you can make a tax deductible contribution in support of these initiatives. And when you do, you help create jobs, provide power, and protect Maine’s environment.

How does the fund work?

The money is distributed by Efficiency Maine as rebates for cost-effective renewable energy technologies and grants for renewable energy demonstration and education projects around the state.

Contact Efficiency Maine at 1-866-376-2436 or email info@efficiencymaine.com for more information.

How can I contribute?

If you’d like to start contributing today, please fill out our electronic registration form. You'll also receive information about the Fund twice a year with your electric bill, which includes an enrollment form.

You can make a one-time donation, or choose to give a set amount each month. The amount will be reflected on your Emera Maine bill and is in addition to your existing electric service and delivery charges. You may cancel at any time.

Make a contribution today and make a difference for tomorrow.

  • The Maine Public District serves Aroostook County and a small piece of Penobscot County.

Because some information varies by District, please identify your District on the map above, or enter your town or zipcode. If you need information on both Districts,  switch back and forth at any time by selecting the district selector button.
