Maine's energy legislation carryovers from 2017

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

When the First Regular Session of the 128th Maine State Legislature adjourned earlier this year, its committees reserved a list of bills for further debate in 2018.  A list of these carryover bills published by the legislative information office includes 16 bills carried over by the Joint Standing Committee on Energy, Utilities, and Technology.  While new legislation may be proposed in the legislature's second session, the committee's work in 2018 will include action on these carried-over bills.

Here's an excerpt from the list of bills carried over, focused on the Energy, Utilities, and Technology committee:
Based on these bill titles, the committee will be faced with continuing discussion over broadband; regulation and incentives for renewable energy resources including solar, hydroelectricity and biomass; economic development and reduction of electricity rates.
