Protecting Maine's Environment
Urge Your Legislators to Support a Strong Solar Policy for Maine
The Maine PUC voted to roll back Maine's solar policy: net metering.

It's more important than ever that the Legislature stops the PUC from gutting solar in Maine.
Proceeds will be used to advocate for clean energy in Maine and beyond.
