Public Meetings for Energy Plan Rescheduled 

AUGUSTA, Maine –  The Governor’s Energy Office (GEO) has postponed its series of public meetings to seek public input on development of the Energy Planning Roadmap that advances the state of Maine’s energy, economic development, and environmental goals. 

The roadmap, which builds on the 2015 state comprehensive energy plan update http://maine.gov/energy/pdf/2015%20Energy%20Plan%20Update%20Final.pdf has the following objectives:  achieve energy and cost savings in the residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation sectors; reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions; and support the growth of a robust state and regional energy market and workforce.  

The public meetings will be rescheduled to provide the public additional notice, so more Mainers will have the opportunity to attend.  Dates, times, and locations will be announced shortly.

This planning process is supported by a U.S. Department of Energy, State Energy Program award.
