Ampion began in 2014 in Bar Harbor, Maine with the premise that the future was renewable energy and that it would be available to anyone who wanted it. At the time, community energy was a new idea and more concept than reality. Today, we are focused on supporting the communities we serve through our Community Partnerships Model. Ampion partners with organizations to educate and enroll their membership on Community Solar, while making a donation to the organization for every enrollment. In 2021, Ampion donated over $100,000 to community groups and causes across New England. We aim to strengthen our relationships with Maine Nonprofits, and help the state reach renewable energy goals.
