Important Announcements

  • The Maine Public Utilities Commission is seeking public comment on proposed revisions to its Policy on Remote Participation to address a new law P.L. 2021, Ch. 290. While the Commission has always deliberated publicly and for many years has provided a means for the public to watch its deliberations in real time, the proposed revisions address requirements of the new law to explicitly prohibit public proceedings from being conducted by text-only means. Comments may be submitted by sending an email to by October 29, 2021. More details are available by reviewing the Remote Participation Policy. (September 23, 2021)
