IBEW 1837 at NextEra Energy

Approximately 50 members of IBEW 1837 work for NextEra (formerly Florida Power and Light) generating electricity. They maintain and operate the oil-fired plant on Cousins Island in Yarmouth.

FPL-Maine acquired the Maine assets from CMP in 1998, shortly after Maine’s electric deregulation law prohibited a company from owning both generation and distribution assets. Most of the IBEW 1837 members who work at the NextEra facilities are former CMP employees who worked at their jobs prior to deregulation and the sale, and are longtime union members.

IBEW Local 1837 Union Stewards at NextEra are:
