ReVision Co-Founder Fortunat Mueller with Maine Governor Janet Mills, just after the signing of LD91, a law which restores retail net metering. The event was held at Rocky's Stove Shoppe in Augusta, site of Maine's first solar-powered stove shop!
On Tuesday, April 2nd, Maine Gov. Janet Mills signed into law LD91 , a law which directs the PUC to end gross metering and return to full retail net metering. The Maine PUC, this Tuesday, April 9th, met and issued an emergency order ending gross metering immediately (rather than wait 90 days for the law to take affect). Gross metering is dead!
