    bills at center of fierce debate over incentives for Maine rooftop solar

    Bills at center of fierce debate over bonuses for Maine rooftop solar Solid opponents said the bill will raise electric rates, For instance Gov. Paul LePage and core Maine Power Co https://www.steelersgearfanshop.com/PSkAl30x4XsPN. Also hitting the scales was the chairman of the Maine Public Utilities Commission, Signature Vannoy. Although praoclaiming that his agency was neutral on the bill, Vannoy provided damning account about its impact on ratepayers, Computing that net metering last year shifted $1 custom steelers jersey.8 million onto non solar people served by CMP, And that offered solar rebates would add $2 million to that in their first year. Enthusiasts, The actual, Have calculated that the incentive would add a nickel per month to a typical home power company bill. And they said the rebates considered in the legislation, Aimed at encouraging more solar installs, Is going to add $1.30 a year to most of bill at first, Falling to 60 cents a year at the end of software program. In coming work sessions, Lawmakers might need to decipher these competing and confusing estimates. The measure closely seeks to protect net energy billing, Typically referred to as net metering, Which compensates homeowners and smaller businesses at the full retail rate for power they generate. It would supersede a broadly criticized rule approved in January by the PUC that would gradually reduce that damages beginning in 2018. Solar installers say the rollback and additional factors of the PUC rule would cripple their industry and stunt the kind of job growth here that is taking place in other states. In a wider, Politics sense, The bill also has to be litmus test, In order to its prime sponsor, Repetition. Seth super fruits, Chemical Bowhoinham. Yr after, An in-depth solar bill that featured a different approach to net metering died after lawmakers failed to override the governor veto by two votes. LePage is a strident cruci of net metering, Saying it unfairly shifts the cost of solar installation to all electricity customers Super fruits, Who co chairs the committee that handles energy matters and will make hints to the full Legislature, Said before the public hearing that lawmakers might need to take a stand: For fresh, Locally delivered energy, Or for outside the state fossil fuels. Feel that in future elections, He explained, Legislature will be judged on this allowed the PUC extreme decision to stand, Or this took steps to move Maine forward to control our own energy destiny https://www.steelersgearfanshop.com/PS4XajAE1uNb3. Representative. Beth e R Berwick, A member of the committee known for her lower fiscal outlook, Said she not aware of support from House Republicans for this process. Going to view it fairly, She acknowledged. Do think it cautious to keep net metering, But it shouldn’t, Don’t, Cost ratepayers dough. The setting of Thursday hearing was a notice of appeal with the Maine Supreme Judicial Court, Filed Monday by general groups. If congress don supersede the PUC action, The efficiency Law Foundation said it ready to challenge the rule on legal grounds. But Berry said hello was the role of the Legislature to set policy, Not utility regulators and the geographical lawyers. Can cause jobs for lawyers, Or we can create jobs for professional, He explained. Berry bill is among limited number of other efforts this session meant to advance the use of solar power. But this one is getting the hardest push from general groups that include the Natural Resources Council of Maine and the Maine Chapter of the Sierra Club. They held a well attended rally outside the Cross workplace before the hearing, Hoping to get their visitors to put pressure on legislators to support solar. Gripping testimony came from Kelly Fairfield, Who stood ahead of the committee with her sleeping 5 month old daughter in a carrier. She and her husband are taking into account solar for a house they buying in Farmingdale, But concern over net metering is giving them pause. Fairfield said she using cloth diapers for my child baby, And would feel guilty not using the sun’s rays to power their new home. But opponents don see why other individuals should help pay for Fairfield desire. Both Angela Monroe, The governor acting energy manager, And fran Harrington, A spokesperson for CMP, Outlined how the number of solar customers has been ramping up quickly these days. If the pace goes and current electric rates hold steady, Monroe celebrity fad, A flood of consumers will be compensated at rates well above market costs. For the legal outcome on net metering rules to change this year, Dems, Republicans and interest groups should preferably reach a consensus. Based on Thursday account, That seems improbable steelers Color Rush jersey. Berry bill would still let solar owners get a full, One to one credit on the distribution and supply portions of their household bills. Those credits help individuals recover the costs of solar electric panels, Which in turn average $10,000 or possibly even longer. It also would restore a long expired rebate program aimed at creating further incentive. The rebates would total that are $8 million, Stepping down eventually. For an average CMP domestic bill of $70 a month, The rebate associated with surcharge would add 9 cents in 2017 and 4 cents in 2022. Solar advocates say even that small cost would partially be offset by reducing the necessity of expensive power plants to meet peak demand on hot summer days. Berry said this method can help Maine move out of last place in New England, In terms of solar power use and jobs related installing and servicing the systems.

    Hungarian Rotaract Roundtrip @ Roundtrip
    Sep 27 – Oct 2 all-day
    Hungarian Rotaract Roundtrip @ Roundtrip

    Dear Fellow Rotaractors,
    We are looking forward to have you in Hungary for an amazing trip through the world-famous wine making regions.
    The trip will kick off at Budapest on the 27th of September, 2017 , we will meet with you at the station/airport (depends on you) and after we take you home to put your stuff down, we all will meet for a lovely dinner where we can get to know each other a bit better.
    The next morning you will visit the city of Eger, where the famous wine, the Egri Bikavér is coming from as well as so many other delicious wines. Let’s try some of them during or after our lunch. In the afternoon we will visit the castle of Eger and have a little walk in the city before we head to our dinner place. We will spend the night in Eger.
    On Friday, the 29th of September, we are heading back to Budapest. We are going to spend the day with sight-seeing (there is a lot to see!) and as on Friday nights, the city goes crazy, we will try to visit as many good ruin bars as possible.
    30th of September, after we spent some time in East-Hungary and Budapest, we are starting to move closer to REM Ljubjana. At Győr, we will visit the lovely city and the Fröccs festival, where it will be possible to try out all kinds of wines from all over Hungary.
    1st of October, our next stop is Sopron, the city of loyalty (you will find it out there why we call it that way). In the other hand, I would like to let you know as the Rotaract Sopron has grapes all over their logo, you will also find it out why.
    As Pre-REM Ljubjana will start on the 2nd of October, we would like to finish our trip on that day, but if you are not willing to participate on the Pre-REM or on the REM (I hope there will be no Rotaractors who would miss it, but it is up to you), we would like to give you the right to choose what to do. You will be able to either take a train back to Budapest, take a train to Slovenia, but you will be able to stay with us for a couple more days before the REM starts. But because of this flexibility, non of these options included in the price of the Roundtrip (of course in case you stay with us, you do not have to pay for accommodation in Hungary!)
    We would like to ask 150 Euros for all of these activities, accommodations, travelling and we will provide you meals 3 times a day. The only thing what will be on you is the drinks! 😛
    I would like to inform you that the registration is now open, please use the following link or the “Book Now” button to reach the form.
    In case of any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us!

    REM Ljubljana Autumn 2017 @ Ljubljana
    Oct 5 – Oct 8 all-day
    REM Ljubljana Autumn 2017 @ Ljubljana | | |

    Visiting Ljubljana, Slovenia’s 2,000-year-old capital, feels like stepping into an ancient fable. It is the sort of place where you can stroll past jelly-bean-coloured Baroque churches, over a bridge flanked by dragons — Ljubljana’s mascot — onto winding cobblestone lanes filled with local farmers selling peonies the size of lap dogs and creaky inns serving bear meat.

    Ljubljana is a city that will surprise you and exceed your expectations. It is unique – small by surface area, but huge in terms of hospitality and quality of life. In the Autumn of 2017 we will be hosting the next European Rotaract Meeting. #REMemberdragon #REMembertheride
