For a small monthly fee, residents of Maine will have the choice to source power from renewable resources by the fall of 2011. The Maine Public Utilities Commission will begin offering this option within a few short months. Maine Interfaith Power & Light has been a partner with the state in several renewable energy projects. Harry Brown, executive director of Maine Interfaith Power & Light,Â said that past efforts relied largely on word of mouth to publicize the options. He believes a consistent, well-marketed program with simple enrollment will attract thousands of new customers. “I think you’re going to see exponential growth,” he said.
