"Capitol Update" piece on a decision by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
"Capitol Update" piece on a decision by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, under which Mainers collectively will have to pay $300 million more for electricity over the next four years. Business users will see higher increases than residential customers. Gov. John Baldacci says the increase is unacceptable, and the Maine Public Utilities Commission (PUC) will study whether Maine should continue as a member of the New England Power Pool or ISO-New England, the Independent System Operator for the region. Kurt Adams, PUC chairman, joined Baldacci in expressing concerns, adding that residential customers in Maine will see increases of about six percent beginning in December.
