After backward rules and years of inaction on solar, in 2019, the Maine Legislature and Governor Janet Mills acted to accelerate solar jobs and increase the amount of solar for Maine residents, businesses, and towns. At the start of 2019, Maine had 55 megawatts (MW) of installed solar. In the next five years that is expected to increase to more than 500 MW. We are already seeing this exciting development and job creation across the state, and many Maine towns are already taking advantage. Learn more.
I hope you can join us for this informative webinar about municipal solar in Maine. Invite your friends on Facebook.
