Mills signs bill to spur offshore wind in Maine, ensure high labor standards within industry

Environmental advocates also praised the signing of the measure.

“Offshore wind is the single biggest lever we can pull to address the climate crisis, meet Maine’s energy needs, and grow our economy simultaneously,” said Kathleen Meil of Maine Conservation Voters.

“When this bill is implemented, Maine will set a national example for how to responsibly develop a new, affordable energy source, grow good-paying jobs for our workers, and do so without compromising Maine values,” she added. “We’re ready to get to work and launch this new industry.”
