Versant Power is a regulated electric transmission and distribution utility serving 159,000 customer accounts in northern and eastern Maine. The company, formerly Emera Maine, initially was formed when Bangor Hydro Electric Company and Maine Public Service merged in January 2014.
We are owned by ENMAX Corp., a full-service energy company based in Calgary, Alberta, which has committed to major investment in Maine to guarantee the safe, reliable delivery of electricity as well as reduced rates for Versant Power customers.
Versant Power is responsible for the electricity grid — a system of poles, wires, substations, meters and other equipment that makes safe and reliable delivery of electricity possible. Our role includes planning for the needs of the system; restoring power when Mother Nature creates havoc with overhead lines; evaluating new technologies that can enable greater reliability, resiliency, and customer choice; and timing investments so that benefits for our customers exceed costs.
