Maine's Energy Policy 2015
E2Tech presents: Maine's Energy Policy 2015
Governor Paul LePage has placed energy cost reduction at the top of his agenda in his second term. Priorities may include renewable portfolio standard revisions; regional efforts to expand natural gas pipeline capacity; support for lower cost heating systems in homes and businesses; and investment in Maine's hydropower infrastructure.
Governor LePage will also have the opportunity to appoint two new Commissioners to the Maine Public Utilities Commission. The Maine PUC will tackle topics that are likely to be part of the policy agenda in the legislature, such as renewable energy incentives, wind energy siting, and long-term contracts.
E2Tech has invited government and business leaders to discuss energy policy issues and potential legislation, including those proposals, programs, and actions that will be critical to Maine’s energy future and investments in natural gas, renewable energy, and electricity transmission and distribution.

- Rep. Mark N. Dion (D-Portland) - Co-Chair, Energy, Utilities & Technology Committee, Maine Legislature
