We oppose Central Maine Power’s (CMP’s) proposal to build a 145-mile transmission line from the Québec-Maine border to Lewiston because it would harm Maine forests and wildlife, suppress Maine’s renewable energy industry, and could actually increase climate change emissions, all without any clear benefit to Maine or Massachusetts.
Please sign below to urge decision makers in these states to deny CMP’s permits.
Signatures will be delivered to the Maine Public Utilities Commission, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, the Maine Land Use Planning Commission, and the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities.

Thank you for adding your name to our petition in opposition to CMP's proposed 145-mile transmission line from the Quebec border, through western Maine to Lewiston.
Please help us spread the word by sharing this petition on Facebook, Twitter, or via email to your friends.
