Emera Proposes New Transmission Line; Loring Offers an Alternative

This Notice of Proceeding was issued for MPUC Docket 2014-00048 and delivered to the landowners and abutters of a new Transmission Line proposed by Emera Maine. The purpose of the new Transmission Line is to allow increased electric transmission capacity from New Brunswick, Canada. But the developers of the Loring Energy Projects have a better idea

We can solve the reliability problem by simply generating our own electricity, here in the County. Anchor Power, LLC has proposed an 85MW natural gas-fired cogeneration facility dubbed the "Loring Cogen" to resolve the reliability problem, provide baseload energy and capacity for Northern Maine, heat and steam for industrial applications, and anchor natural gas infrastructure for Industrial, Commercial and Residential consumers throughout Northern Maine.
