Solar energy bill will move Maine into the future
A bill before the Legislature this session would set a goal for the state of reaching 40 megawatts of solar energy development by 2016 and 200 megawatts by 2020.
LD 1652, An Act To Support Solar Energy Development in Maine, aims to boost solar energy development in the state, and advocates say it will also strengthen the economy by creating jobs, protect the environment by reducing the dependence on fossil fuels and bring the state up to speed with the rest of New England, according to the Associated Press.
