Clean Renewable Energy
Our region has vigorous forests, windy ridges, flowing water, and plenty of sunshine. Our current, nearly complete reliance on finite fossil fuel resources for our energy needs can be replaced by home-, community-, and regional-scale renewable energy and a serious commitment to conservation. As the adverse environmental and climate impacts of our current energy system are gradually reflected in the cost of that energy, we will find that solar, wind, small hydro, and sustainable biomass-derived energy will become more economically feasible. Western Maine has a skilled, underemployed manufacturing workforce and the abundant renewable resources to become a regional leader in renewable energy by 2025.
