AUGUSTA — The state of Maine is accepting letters of intent for the possible use of state-owned Interstate 95 and I-295 as corridors for transmitting electricity.

State Energy Director Ken Fletcher says Maine’s Energy Infrastructure Interagency Review Panel is accepting the proposals.

Fletcher says the project can reduce energy costs for Mainers.

By law, those wishing to submit proposals must prove it will not impede in-state electricity generation and demonstrate that it will lower electricity rates and energy costs for Maine consumers.
