Urge Your Legislators to Support Solar in Maine and Pass LD 1504
The Energy Committee recently voted in support of LD 1504, and now we have a narrow window of time to mobilize support in the full Legislature. This bill would prevent the costly PUC net metering rule from taking effect and allow expanded community solar. It is strongly opposed by Gov. LePage and will undoubtedly require a two-thirds vote to overcome his anticipated veto.
Don't Cut the EPA!
The Trump Administration has proposed massive cuts to the US EPA, including cutting EPA’s budget by 31% and its personnel by 3,200 staffers. These irresponsible cuts would have devastating impacts on environmental protection nationwide, including here in Maine. Sign our petition to protect EPA's important programs that keep Maine’s air and water clean.
Tell President Trump to Stop Rollbacks on Climate Protection
President Trump issued an Executive Order to roll back America’s climate protections, including the landmark Clean Power Plan. NRCM and our partners around the state and country will use every tool we have to fight back, including legal action and people power. The stakes are too high and climate action is imperative. We need your help. Send a letter today!
