Energy bill vote angers Governor

One more example of 'green' energy rules structured to oppose the importation of cheaper, cleaner, energy

Energy bill vote angers Governor | wlbz2.com:
"AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Governor Paul LePage is taking aim at eight Legislators who voted against one of his energy bills - and is calling on his supporters to lobby the Legislators to change their minds.

The Governor wants to change a twelve-year old law that regulates the  purchase of renewable electricity in Maine. That law says that to qualify  under Maine's Renewable Energy Portfolio standards, the power must come from sources smaller than 100 megawatts.
The Governor wants to lift that hundred megawatt cap, because he and his energy director believe it would open the way for Maine to buy less expensive hydro power from Canada."
