CES 2021 LUNCHTIME WEBINAR SERIES: SOLAR DEVELOPMENT UPDATES IN MAINE

Let's talk solar! Ever since the State Legislature passed L.D. 1711 in June of 2019, solar development in Maine has been a hot topic. Maine's legislature is weighing in on the future of the program while the industry's marketing and development efforts are in full swing. In the news, we had heard a lot about solar - confusion strewn by CMP for solar projects seeking to connect to the grid, anger and frustration from the renewable energy industry, and an investigation into CMP launched by the Maine Public Utilities Commission and Governor Janet Mills.

In this webinar, we cover:

  • Why so much buzz around solar?
  • Issues that will continue to challenge project development.
  • How to pick a winning project.
  • What's next from Augusta?
