Longroad Energy statement on Massachusetts DOER’s beneficial determination decision on northern Maine clean energy supply and transmission

December 30, 2022 – Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources’ beneficial determination decision is an important step forward to supply residents of the Commonwealth with affordable clean energy. Longroad appreciates the selection of King Pine Wind as a cost-effective, clean energy option under the policies established through the leadership of the legislature and Baker-Polito Administration.  

Coordination between states is critical to the Commonwealth achieving its climate goals – and those of the region as a whole – in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. As a recent study showed, by working together on this initiative, Maine and Massachusetts can deliver significant economic and climate benefits for both states through leveraging the substantial wind resource in Aroostook County.

We look forward to working with stakeholders in both states to make this project a success.

Longroad appreciates the hard work of the staff at DOER and in the Office of the Attorney General in their review of this solicitation under a tight timeline.
