With a flourishing renewables sector, Maine has set a goal to use 100% of Maine’s electricity from renewable power sources by 2040.
The transition to clean energy resources strengthens Maine’s economy by creating local job opportunities and reducing dependence on out-of-state fossil fuels. Cleaner forms of energy production and increased efficiency programs help Maine businesses stabilize and lower their energy bills. International and national supply chains offer abundant opportunity for renewable energy solutions being developed by businesses and world-class research institutions in Maine.
