You are cordially invited to attend The Missing Link: A Statewide Interconnection Conference on June 22nd at the Hutchinson Center in Belfast. A Climate to Thrive has developed this conference in order to meet the largest challenge facing renewable energy deployment and will define Maine’s ability to reach our climate goals.

Towns, cities, and their taxpayers from across Maine have benefitted from municipally-owned solar projects that offer local clean energy generation, grid benefits, and fixed low-cost electricity. Yet, these projects are becoming increasingly difficult to develop due to growing costly, slow, and arduous interconnection processes that create unnecessary barriers and burdens for small Maine municipal solar projects. These barriers are preventing municipalities (and their residents) from taking advantage of the benefits of solar and are also threatening the success of Maine’s renewable energy goals.  Please register here if you are interested in attending or visit our website to learn more. Early registration is encouraged to reserve your spot.
