An Act Establishing Minimum Efficiency Standards for Certain Products Sold or Installed in the State (2005)

Sought to set minimum efficiency standards for 18 new appliances sold or installed in Maine in order to reduce energy consumption. This cost-effective policy option had the unanimous support of the Climate Change Stakeholders Group, which consisted of over 100 representatives from business, environment and public health interests. Efficiency standards would have saved significant energy, prevented pollution, and improved the health of the 10% of Maine citizens who suffer from asthma.
