As an energy auditor, I see the impact of homeowners and businesses who invest in energy efficiency every day. Energy costs take a big chunk out of Maine peoples’ budgets every year — more so because our housing stock is old and not energy-efficient. Tightening up our homes is the best, most cost-effective way to reduce our energy costs as a state.

I was very pleased to see Sen. Roger Katz recognize these efforts with his strong support of the bipartisan work represented in the omnibus energy bill. This bill supports the expansion of natural gas, currently a cheaper form of energy than oil, as well as expanded energy efficiency efforts. Katz’s vote will help families, small businesses and large companies across Kennebec County and the state to lower their energy costs.
