WILL MAINE'S ENERGY FUTURE BE AN EQUITABLE FUTURE?
Whether we know it or not, we interact with Maine's energy policies every time we fill the tank, flip the switch, or turn on the heat. But are those policies fair? And as we imagine Maine's clean energy future, how can we ensure that our most vulnerable neighbors won't be left behind?
This question of energy equity has no easy answers. Something as urgent as keeping homes warm during the winter months is complicated not only by economics and geography, but culture and history as well. We can all agree that the benefits of Maine’s energy policy should be accessible to all Maine’s residents, but how to ensure that Maine’s energy policy reflects the diverse interests of those in the State and all Mainers can participate in the State’s transition to a clean energy future is less straight forward.
With an eye on today's challenges and tomorrow's solutions, this panel will discuss the current state of energy policies in Maine with a focus on equity and inclusion at every level of the system - from Climate Council to Community Action.
