Gov. Paul LePage spoke about the University of Maine and its proposed offshore wind pilot project for an in-depth article on the governor by the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting. LePage, who is a UMaine alumnus, called the land grant university a “pretty good organization” and spoke about his preference for the institution over Norwegian company Statoil for the proposed project. Statoil pulled the plug on its $120 million offshore wind pilot project recently, leaving UMaine’s proposal as the only project being considered for a state contract. The Bangor Daily News, Sun Journal and Portland Press Herald also carried the report.
