The Mechanic Falls Electric Light Company, originally called Mechanic Falls Water & Electric Light & Power Company, was incorporated in Maine by Chapter 511 of the Acts of 1889. The original corporators were Josiah A. Bucknam, E. Adron Gammon, J. Judson Bucknam, William H. Whitcomb, Henry M. Beane, and F.O. Purington. Located in Minot, it was to furnish water and electricity to the towns of Minot and Poland. Chapter 88 of the Acts of 1899 changed the place of business of the company to Mechanic Falls and its business was extended to the towns of Minot, Poland, and Mechanic Falls. It later became Mechanic Falls Electric Light Company and became a division of Oxford Electric Company in 1916. Oxford was acquired by Central Maine Power Company in 1921.
