from Portland Press Herald

The Maine Public Utilities Commission voted 2-1 recently to restrict funding for energy efficiency programs, drawing harsh criticism from environmentalists and Democratic lawmakers who said the decision would result in higher electricity bills for Maine homeowners and businesses. The ruling means funding for Efficiency Maine will be capped at $22 million a year instead of the $60 million that legislators said they intended to spend on helping Maine homeowners and businesses make their properties more energy-efficient. The decision not only affects homeowners, but paper mills, hospitals, ski areas and other energy users. more
