Thaler Quoted in Associated Press Article on UMaine Wind Project Details

Jeffrey Thaler, University of Maine’s first visiting professor of energy policy, law and ethics who also serves as assistant counsel to the university, spoke with the Associated Press for the article, “With Statoil’s exit, wind industry looks to UMaine.” Since Norwegian company Statoil decided to abandon its $120 million offshore wind pilot project in Maine, UMaine’s proposal became the only project under consideration for a state contract. Details of the proposal will soon be made public. Thaler said once the price of the project is released, he thinks Maine residents will see the “project is very competitive with what Statoil had previously negotiated with the commission.” The Houston Chronicle, NewsDaily, and the San Francisco Chronicle were among organizations to carry the report.
