Solar bill hearing, Apr 16
Solar bill hearing, Apr 16

Please help make solar power more accessible and put Maine on the path for steady growth of solar by asking your legislators to support LD 1263, An Act to Increase Jobs and Promote Investment in Maine’s Economy through Increased Access to Solar Energy, (Sponsored by Rep. Sara Gideon).

Public Hearing:
When: Thursday, April 16, 1:30 p.m.
Where: Room 211 of the Cross State Office Building (next to the State House)

Contact the Energy, Utilities and Technology Committee: http://legislature.maine.gov/committee/?utm_source=MASTER+LIST&utm_campaign=39309b329b-Action-Alert-Solar-April-2015&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_4d19852bfb-39309b329b-115447633#Committees/EUT

Ask them to reduce restrictions and other barriers that limit access to solar for Mainers by supporting LD 1263.

Key Points:
• Maine is falling behind on solar, losing opportunities for job creation and energy security.
• Solar offers Maine homeowners and businesses an affordable way to generate their own power.
• To better capture the opportunity of solar, Maine needs to reduce its financial and regulatory barriers to solar.

This important bill can help move Maine forward on renewable energy. Please attend the hearing or contact the Committee members and urge them to support LD 1263.
