"Pownal is supportive of an energy future that taps clean, renewable power. We understand the economic benefits this project would bring to both Maine and Massachusetts as well and the environmental benefits it would offer the entire New England region. This is a very good project, built largely in existing corridors to keep down costs for Massachusetts and impacts for Maine."
