NECEC Members Advocate for Energy Storage and Other Priorities at Maine Clean Energy Day
Recognizing Maine as a promising market for clean energy solutions, nearly 20 NECEC member companies visited the Maine State House today for NECEC's Maine Clean Energy Day. There, they advocated for establishing an energy storage roadmap, supporting the transportation climate initiative, and taking proactive measures for distributed generation interconnection, among other priorities. Members met directly with legislators, as well as representatives of the Mills Administration. The day also included a legislative briefing with NECEC state partner E2Tech.
NECEC also released its 2020 Maine Clean Energy Policy Priorities, which outline key legislative policies to advance clean energy in Maine. In particular, NECEC is focused on ensuring the clean energy legislation passed in 2019 is properly implemented in order to sustain momentum and spur investment. Priorities, in addition to those listed above, also include exploring opportunities for offshore wind and continuing to support energy efficiency programs.
