solarformeJoin Maine Audubon and our Solar for ME coalition partners for a big solar rally at the State House next Wednesday, April 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

RSVP for the solar rally!

Maine is already in last place for solar in the region, but Governor LePage and his allies are working hard to further roll back solar in Maine, which would put hundreds of existing solar jobs at risk and bring much-needed solar development to a halt. Come to the State House next week to show support for solar power and LD 1649 — the comprehensive solar energy bill.

The House and the Senate will vote on LD 1649 next week, so we need to act fast. Please rally with us to stop the attack on Maine’s solar industry. There’s a lot on the line, and we need your help more than ever.

You can meet us at 8:30 a.m. at NRCM’s office to pick up a yellow solar t-shirt before the rally. If you already have a solar t-shirt, please wear it! There is a parking garage and lots of parking near NRCM’s office, which is across from the State House. Please consider carpooling to this event.

If you are unable to join us for the solar rally, please urge your legislators to support LD 1649 —we cannot let Governor LePage and his Public Utilities Commission weaken Maine’s already lagging solar industry. Phone calls and personalized emails are most effective. Find your state senator here. Find your state representative here. Or send a quick email to your legislators right now.

Join us at the State House next Wednesday, April 13, to rally for solar power. There’s a lot on the line and we need your help more than ever.
