Maine PUC Launches Carbon-Free Homes Project

May 2007 - The Maine Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has launched a web-based initiative designed to provide electricity consumers with basic information on energy efficiency and clean energy. Through the 10,000 Carbon Free Homes project, Mainers can calculate the carbon emissions released into the air from their home's energy use, find out what to do to reduce energy use through efficiency, and sign up for either renewable electricity or to purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs) in order to offset their carbon emissions. By April 22, 2008 (Earth Day), the PUC hopes to have 10,000 homes enrolled in the project, which would represent about 2% of total state households.
