As the federal government rolls back smart energy policies, it’s up to us to push for clean, local, cost-effective energy in Maine. Solar power offers all this and more: opportunities for job growth, rural development, economic savings, and energy independence. It’s time to get Maine out of last place in New England on solar, and you can help!
The Senate has just voted in favor of a new solar bill, and we expect the House of Representatives to vote this week. This bill (LD 1444) would take a step in the right direction by prohibiting utilities from charging those with solar panels for the electricity that they produce and use themselves. It's up to you to let your congresspeople know that a vote against LD 1444 is a vote against the interests of Mainers. Use the form below to tell state representatives that you want to see our solar momentum continue.
