Mills Administration Statement on PUC’s Electricity Rate Decrease Due to Renewable Energy 

June 14, 2022

“The PUC’s action shows the clear connection between renewable energy and lower electricity costs,” said Dan Burgess, Director of the Governor’s Energy Office. “These savings from renewable energy couldn’t come at a better time for Maine people, who are experiencing a significant increase in utility bills stemming from volatile global energy markets and our region’s over-reliance on natural gas to generate electricity. We look forward to further advancing responsible and affordable clean energy to reduce the burden on Maine ratepayers and our dependence on expensive imported fossil fuels.”
