Emera Maine is proposing a new transmission line running between Woodstock and Monticello to resolve the electric system reliability issue. As an alternative, Loring Holdings has proposed constructing a natural gas-fired cogeneration facility at the Loring Commerce Centre, which will solve the reliability issue and anchor the expansion of natural gas into Northern Maine.
The Initial Case Conference for this proceeding will take place at the Maine Public Utilities Commission offices in Hallowell on November 6th. The LEP developers will be attending and we encourage you to get involved as well. This decision impacts every Aroostook County business and family. We must do all that we can to bring economic development opportunities to the Loring Commerce Centre and fight to get the County back on track.
