    Producer/Host: Meredith DeFrancesco

    Issue: Environmental and Social Justice

    Program Topic: Public Hearing on LD 1649 An Act to Modernize Maine Solar Power Policy and Encourage Economic Development

    Key Discussion Points:
    1) Today we hear excerpts from yesterday’s public hearing on LD 1649 An Act to Modernize Maine Solar Power Policy and Encourage Economic Development before the legislature’s Joint Committee3 on energy Utilities and Technology.
    2) LD 1649 is the product of a long negotiation of stakeholders, including solar installers, electric power companies (Central Maine Power and Emera Maine), the State Office of the Public Advocate, and environmental organizations.
    3) Maine lags far behind other states in the region in solar power, much of this attributed to the lack of supportive public policy and consequent financial support.
