Decisions by Maine's Public Utilities Commission have the potential to advance a low-carbon future, in line with the state's Climate Action Plan and climate law—but current law requires the PUC to prioritize low rates and reliable service without regard for climate, health, and equity priorities. Join us as Phil Bartlett, PUC Chair; State Rep. Vicki Doudera; and Jeff Marks, Maine State Director at Acadia Center, discuss proposed legislation to add climate and environmental justice to the PUC's mandate and advance the action called for in Maine's Climate Action Plan.

Aligning the Public Utilities Commission with climate and equity goals is a priority of Maine's Environmental Priorities Coalition (EPC)! Learn more about the EPC's 2021 agenda here, and stay tuned for upcoming Lunch & Learns on other priority bills.
