- Mill Slated For Maine’s Largest Privately-Funded Solar Project
Maine is making headlines again for leading the charge towards a solar energy future. Pepperell Mill in Biddeford will soon become the site of the largest privately-held solar energy project in the state. The project includes 1,200 PV panels and is expected to produce more than enough electricity to meet the needs of the mill campus’s residential units.
- Both Maine House and Senate Vote to Support Solar Bill
In March 2018, Maine’s House and Senate voted overwhelmingly in support of LD 1444. The bill was intended to increase access to community solar in Maine and keep utility companies from charging new fees on solar power. However, LD 1444 was vetoed by the Governor and filed away. Similar bills are expected to make their way to the floor within the next several years.
