MEREDA’s Morning Menu Breakfast Event: Solar Power in Maine: What you need to know about investing in solar in Maine

In 2019, the Maine Legislature passed LD 91 which reset the state’s metering policy for solar and ensures that consumers who produce electricity from solar panels are fairly compensated for supplying excess energy back to the electric grid. Come learn more about solar, from design to financing to tax credits.
