(Power grid International). BATH, Maine (AP) — Central Maine Power has begun its political campaign to save its proposed 145-mile transmission line project in Maine.
The Bangor Daily News reports the opposition to the line has more to do with the company proposing it than the line itself.
The company is under investigation by Maine energy regulators for reports of high bills and poor customer service.
The utility company launched a political committee called Clean Energy Matters and aired its first TV ad, which urges viewers to “get the facts” about the job creation and carbon reduction the project offers.
