About Versant Power
Versant Power was previously Emera Maine until Canadian company ENMAX Corp. acquired it. As part of the terms and conditions for that sale, Emera Maine had to change its name. The company announced its new name in March 2020. Emera Maine initially launched in 2014 when Bangor Hydro Electric Company and Maine Public Service merged. This utility company is responsible for its service area’s grid, which includes meters, poles, substations, wires, and any additional equipment necessary for delivering reliable power.
Customers within Versant Powers’s service area have a choice of which energy supplier they would like to use. If they don’t choose one, then they the standard-offer service. That service is available through the Maine Public Utilities Commission. Versant Power currently has nearly 160,000 customer accounts.
