Fourteen Maine companies make Inc. magazine's 'fastest growing' list

The parent company of Electricity Maine and 13 other Maine businesses have been named as some of the country's fastest-growing private companies by Inc. magazine.

The Portland Press Herald reported that Provider Power — an Auburn-based electricity provider for Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire that's known here as Electricity Maine — made the magazine's No. 6 spot for its elite Inc. 500 list, based on its posted 2013 revenue of $137.9 million, a 19,877% increase over the previous three years. They were also ranked No. 1 in the energy sector.

Thirteen other Maine companies made the Inc. 5,000 list — which, similar to the 500 list, requires private companies to submit revenue figures in order to be considered.

The other companies are listed in the table below.
