Energy is a critical cost factor to Maine people and businesses and to others who may consider relocating here. The Measures of Growth report’s Cost of Energy indicator tracks retail and industrial electricity prices for Maine, both of which have declined in recent years. Nevertheless, Maine’s costs of energy remain high relative to the nation. Further understanding of the issues related to costs, consumption, and production can help inform our decisions as we look to grow Maine’s economy.
