Monhegan, Maine

Location: Monhegan, Maine

With one of the highest electric rates in the country ($0.70/kWh) and multiple energy projects under consideration, Monhegan is at a critical juncture which may allow for the incorporation of more sustainable energy systems. The island’s power generation system is very quickly approaching the end of its useful life and will be replaced with microturbines, solar PV, updated controls, and a cogeneration system. An energy planning committee is investigating possible ways for the community to move forward beyond these investments.
