Governor LePage wrong to veto solar bill

On Monday, Governor LePage vetoed LD 1504, a bill that would have partially restored Maine's net metering policy after the Maine Public Utilities Commission voted to roll it back in January. This means that Maine residents who install solar after January 1, 2018 will still receive less credit for the extra energy they send back to the power grid.
