Posted on:

The Maine Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has proposed the most extreme anti-solar net metering rules in the country. We need your help to fight these changes!

Please join us at a rally and public hearing at the PUC on Monday, October 17.

What: Solar Rally and Public Hearing
When: Monday, October 17, rally at noon, public hearing at 1:00 p.m.
Where: Maine Public Utilities Commission, 101 Second Street, Hallowell, ME

Please RSVP on Facebook and share with your friends!

Maine is missing out on the tremendous opportunity to capture solar power—a clean, local energy source that could create hundreds of good new jobs and reduce electricity costs for Mainers.

Last month, the PUC issued draft changes that would gut net metering for future customers. Net metering has made it possible for thousands of Maine homes and businesses to own and produce their own solar power.

The PUC’s proposed rules will set Maine back even further on solar power. The proposal includes charging solar customers transmission and distribution rates even for the power that gets consumed on site!

I hope you can join us at the rally and public hearing on October 17. Your participation is critical to show Mainers support solar energy, local jobs, and energy choice.

Thank you,
