Renewable Energy

Increasing renewable energy generation is a priority of Governor Mills’ Administration. Working together with the Legislature, Maine has made significant progress moving forward on these issues. Reducing the State’s dependence on fossil fuels and transitioning to a more diverse portfolio of clean energy resources not only reduces the State’s emissions, it also helps support Maine’s economy by creating local job opportunities, generating economic benefits, and reducing expenditures for out-of-state fossil fuels, keeping more money in Maine’s economy.
