Janet Mills on Energy & Oil

 

 


Bring back wind platforms to Maine

This spring I will visit Scotland to see the offshore wind platforms they are using to supply that country with clean renewable energy. I am determined that the business we once lost to them, we will bring back to Maine. We have great potential. And in the coming weeks, my administration will be taking steps forward to unleash it. Stay tuned.

Combat climate change: offshore wind & electric incentives

Climate change is a priority issue. We will make every effort, without additional general fund dollars: to assist the University of Maine in the research and development of offshore wind power; to provide incentives for community and residential solar power; to promote energy efficiency and weatherization; to increase the use of heat pumps; to build charging stations and incentives for electric vehicles; and to help local and state government become "green."

Wean ourselves off fossil fuels

Several Democrats running for governor agreed that Maine should have better health care, a better economy, more broadband internet service and better opportunities for all Mainers. Mills said it's important to wean ourselves off fossil fuels and increase use of electric vehicles. On health care, all agreed that the costs of insurance and prescription drugs are too high. Keeping people in Maine and attracting new people was also important to the candidates.
