LD 667 – LD 667 An Act To Create Synergy between Maine Industry and Maine’s Energy Goals in the Use of Certain Funds by the Efficiency Maine Trust

Rep. Kessler-D This bill amends the purposes of the Efficiency Maine Trust to encourage the development and adoption by the trust of environmentally sustainable energy-related and energy efficiency-related products and services derived from the State’s natural resources, industrial by-products, waste products and recycled materials.  It also amends the goals of the Heating Fuels Efficiency and Weatherization Fund by clarifying the reduction of fossil heating fuel consumption as the fund’s primary goal and by encouraging through the use of the fund the replacement of such fuel in residential, commercial and industrial sectors with renewable heating fuel, including, but not limited to, second generation biofuel, biodiesel fuel derived from used vegetable oil and fuel derived using anerobic digestion or other technologies.  The bill also authorizes the expenditure of funds from the fund for programs and program designs that encourage or incentivize measures relating to such environmentally sustainable energy-related and energy efficiency-related products and services.
