Senate Republican Leader presents bill to bring more solar energy investment to Maine

A public hearing was held on a bill Thursday that could really amp up the solar industry in Maine. It would cut out a lot of the red tape around bringing solar energy to the state.

Maine has fallen behind every other New England state when it comes to solar energy, according to a study by the Solar Energy Industries Association.

Bill sponsor Senate Minority Leader Dana Dow, R-Waldoboro, says this could result in a lot of investment and create jobs, as well as bring in new, clean, renewable energy.
