Maine blew it once on offshore wind. It shouldn’t do it again.
The potential that the Maine Public Utilities Commission will reopen a 2014 contract on a pioneering offshore wind energy project has the Bangor Daily News, if not others, less than pleased. In this editorial, the newspaper warns that Maine will (again) damage its ability to attract business and jobs if the contract were reopened. While acknowledging that energy prices have dropped since the agreement was struck, the Daily News doesn't believe conditions have changed sufficiently to merit stoking perceptions that the state isn't an "honest broker" in business dealings. Beyond that, the clean energy project will suffer a needless delay, the newspaper argues. Your thoughts on an appropriate next step for the Maine PUC?
