Action Alert: Explore What Comes Next for Solar In Maine

Monday, June 6th, 2016
Posted on:

Join us for a series of forums around the state that will help answer your questions and explore what comes next for solar in Maine. The series, entitled The Future of Solar in Maine, will bring leading voices on the issue to communities across the state.

Forums are planned for:

  • Waterville: Thursday, June 23
  • Bangor: Tuesday, June 28
  • Rockport: Tuesday, July 12

More details coming soon!

The Legislature’s failure to pass a comprehensive solar bill means Maine does not have a plan to get out of last place regionally on solar. However, the status quo means solar remains a good option for many Mainers.

You’ll also hear more about what’s next at the Public Utilities Commission (PUC), which is set to review and consider changes to net-metering. Net-metering is the simple, effective mechanism existing in Maine—and most other states—to give solar customers credit on their electricity bills for the solar power they provide to the grid when they aren’t using it.

Maine Audubon and partners were deeply engaged in the solar campaign at the Legislature and are committed to defending net-metering at the PUC. I hope you will attend one of the upcoming forums to learn how you can help.

Thank you,
