An Act To Recruit New Businesses to Maine by Providing Energy Efficiency Assistance
CONCEPT DRAFT SUMMARY
This bill is a concept draft pursuant to Joint Rule 208.
This bill proposes to create a program using a $5,000,000 fund to help employers lower their energy costs through energy efficiency and weatherization initiatives. This program would be modeled after the Governor's Jobs Initiative Program administered by the Department of Labor's bureau of employment services, which provides financial assistance to employers that are expanding, reorganizing or locating in the State or are training new or current employees to upgrade worker skills.
