Future of Maine Power Town Hall

  • Rockport Opera House 6 Central Street Rockport, ME (map)

A proposal for cutting a 145-mile corridor for a transmission line in western Maine that would bring hydropower from Quebec to Massachusetts, plus recent events related to failures by Central Maine Power make it a opportune time to discuss options for the future of power in Maine.

Please join us for a Town Hall on the Future of Maine Power from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, in the meeting room of the Rockport Opera House, Rockport, Maine. The event will feature a presentation by Maine State Rep. Seth Berry (D-Bowdoinham) along with Knox County elected officials Rep. Victoria Doudera (D-Dist. 94) and State Sen. Dave Miramant (D-Knox) on a proposal that would create a new consumer-owned utility to replace Central Maine Power and Emera Maine. Rep. Berry is Chair of the Maine Legislature’s Energy, Utilities and Technology Committee, of which Rep. Doudera and Sen. Miramant are members.
