Historical Note

The Bath Electric Light and Power Company was organized in Maine in 1887 and entered into a contract with the city of Bath shortly thereafter to supply lighting for a number of street lights. F.A. Sawyer was president of the company and Fritz H. Twitchell was treasurer. In 1890 it acquired the property of the Bath Gas Light Company and was reorganized as Bath Gas & Electric Company. Bath Gas & Electric became part of Sagadahoc Light & Power Company in 1900. This company became part of Bath & Brunwsick Light & Power Company in 1910. Bath & Brunswick became part of Central Maine Power Company in 1920.
