A recent poll released by the Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM) shows that Maine voters from a wide variety of backgrounds, political affiliations, and geographical differences strongly support solar energy development, global warming, and the new Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument.

“We hope the poll will show the legislators that Maine people would like to get out of last place with solar,” says NRCM Advocacy Director Pete Didisheim.

The results of the poll were mailed to all 361 candidates for legislative office and even Governor Paul LePage, according to NRCM.
