Governor Paul LePage and his administration recently presented its 2015 energy plan for Maine to a panel of state lawmakers. The director of the Governor's Energy Office, Patrick Woodcock, presented the energy plan to the Legislature's Energy, Utilities and Technology Committee.
Just after he was re-elected governor, Paul LePage underscored a major priority of his legislative agenda. "Energy, energy, energy," he said. "It is going to be the top item going into the Legislature."
Energy Office Director Patrick Woodcock has been working on the state energy plan since last summer. He says the broad goals of the plan are to lower energy costs, which are among the highest in the nation, and reduce carbon emissions to improve air quality.
