Maine Businesses and Residents: Did You Know You Can Choose Your Energy Provider?
Maine is the largest state in the New England area. Maine became the 23rd state in 1820, when it was admitted into the Union as a free state to offset Missouri being admitted as a slave state. Today, the two Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec, as well as New Hampshire, border Maine. The state is known for its gorgeous landscapes and stunning rocky beaches, as well as the top-tier lobster that are found off of the coast of Maine.
