Power to the people! 312 Congress Street plots its power here, on the side of the brick building. Central Maine Power Company provides electrical power for the Southern Maine area. Love 'em or hate 'em! They're the only game in town, for public power that is. The company is the Goliath around these parts, and I must say most people have few good words to say about it. As Dad told me, standing next to the back wall on Stevens, "Kid, it's as simple as this. The the faster that dial there spins and those numbers keep flipin', the more money CMP is taking from our pockets."
