I am voting for Pine Tree Power because I want my kids to grow up in a livable climate.

We already know that a key to addressing the climate crisis is switching to renewable energy, and quickly. CMP has shown, time and again, that it’s not really interested. It has dragged its feet on connecting solar projects to the grid and failed to modernize the grid.

By contrast, the majority of the communities in the U.S. that are running on 100 percent renewable energy have one thing in common: local, public control over energy utilities. And this makes sense. When a utility is owned entirely by its customers, it puts their needs first. That means things like getting serious about the energy transition. And let’s not forget: It also means lower rates, fewer outages and higher customer satisfaction.

Join me in voting  “Yes” on Question 3.
