Affordable energy: crucial advantage for you, us

Kevin Mattson of Dirigo Capital Advisors thinks natural gas will bring profound change to Augusta and Kennebec Valley.

Kevin Mattson of Dirigo Capital Advisors thinks natural gas will bring profound change to Augusta and Kennebec Valley.

CLICK THE IMAGE to see why natural gas coming to Augusta is no small thing. According to Summit Natural Gas, which has Maine headquarters in Augusta, residential customers who switch from heating oil to natural natural gas will save about $1,500 in year-round energy costs. The blue flame you see when burning natural gas is a sign of nearly perfect combustion, producing only heat, water and carbon dioxide — about 30 percent less carbon dioxide than oil and about 15 percent less than wood. And, unlike burning wood, it produces almost no emissions damaging to your health or the environment.

Those are pretty impressive savings in the residential sector, and as you might imagine, here in the commercial property sector we’re pretty happy about natural gas as well. For one thing, the Central Maine Commerce Center and its owner, Dirigo Capital Advisors, are together perhaps the single largest provider of commercial real estate space in Kennebec Valley. To offer a steady and affordable energy supply --- without the volatility of wildly fluctuating oil prices --- gives us a competitive advantage nearly unmatched in the state of Maine. As Kevin Mattson explains in the video, this bodes very well for long-term economic expansion in the heart of Maine.

 

If you have a choice, why not be in great company?

Opechee Construction's beautiful work has further enhanced the reputation of the Central Maine Commerce Center as THE premier office park in Maine.

Opechee Construction's beautiful work has further enhanced the reputation of the Central Maine Commerce Center as THE premier office park in Maine.

The Central Maine Commerce Center is pleased to thank our latest contributor to our award winning business park, Opechee Construction Corporation of Belmont, New Hampshire. Last year Opechee completed construction of the largest private office structure in Maine during 2012. Maine Revenue Services and the Maine Office of Information Technology occupy the structure, state organizations that moved in late last year. As the building neared completion, State of Maine officials estimated that leasing the building would save Maine taxpayers more than $1 million per year in rent.

"The majority of the trades on the project were local Maine contractors, right down to the flooring,” according to Jennifer Smith, legislative and communications coordinator for the Department of Administrative and Financial Services.

So we have a nice winning streak going here at CMCC. It was only one year earlier that the Maine Real Estate Developer's Association (MEREDA) honored MaineGeneral Health and its brand new Musculoskeletal Center, a state-of-the-art, 51,000 square foot sports medicine complex. MEREDA was so impressed with this “noteworthy & significant” building that it named it Project of the Year.

There must be a logical explanation for why all this has happened during the Great Recession that began in 2008. And there is. The CMCC is an ideal location for new professional office space. That’s why half of the park has been fully developed in just over 4 years. If you think the company you keep is important, keep in mind that we are now focused on leasing the remaining half of Maine’s fastest growing professional office community. Opportunity knocks!
