First, you must be licensed by the state of Maine.
Second, you must contact Northern Maine Independent System Administrator (“NMISA”) for a company identification number and Load Asset Account number.
Third, you must be certified by Maine Public Service Company (“MPS”) to supply electricity through our system.
