AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine’s public advocate is joining the New England Power Pool as part of ongoing efforts to lower the cost of electricity for homes and businesses.

Membership gives the public advocate greater involvement in the decisions made by ISO-New England, the operator of the New England power grid.

Richard Davies, Maine’s public advocate, says he’ll seek to build alliances to work on behalf of Maine consumers.

The New England Power Pool is a voluntary association of 450 entities, including utilities, energy producers, power marketers and consumer advocates, which serves as an advisory body to ISO-New England.
