The Maine State Senate just voted to override the governor's veto and support the solar bill! This is great news and demonstrates the strong bipartisan commitment to growing solar across Maine. But not everyone supported solar. The vote was 26-7, so that means 7 legislators voted against the solar bill.
Now let's hold our elected officials accountable! We want to make sure the lawmakers who stood up for our values are thanked, and those who let us down know how disappointed we are. Send a message to your state senator now based on their vote on the solar bill.
Remember, this fight isn't over yet. Now the House will have their opportunity to override the veto - most likely tomorrow. We'll make sure to keep you updated!
