Clean air is essential for healthy, happy lives. Clean, renewable energy helps ensure clean air. NRCM works hard for policies and initiatives that will improve Maine’s air quality and reduce pollution that affects our climate throughout the state and region.
NRCM’s clean air and energy work is focused on where we can have the greatest climate impact: cleaner cars and trucks, clean and renewable energy production, and greater energy efficiency.
Our work in these key areas is critical to reducing health and environmental problems already plaguing our state. These include high asthma rates, more “bad air days,” rising sea levels that threaten coastal communities, and threats to our fall foliage, skiing, and our vital tourism-based industry.
NRCM makes certain that Maine’s elected officials and other decision-makers are kept up to date about most recent information related to climate pollution, clean energy technologies, and steps Maine can take to ensure clean air.
