UMEC project highlighted by Maine media

MMainebiz, WABI (Channel 5), Maine Public and WMTW (Channel 8 in Portland) featured a forum about the University of Maine Energy Center (UMEC) project, an effort to upgrade the Central Steam Plant so it can have 100% renewable energy capacity.  “The new facility will be super modern. It will be composed of three dual fuel boilers. That will give us fuel flexibility so we can literally burn any fuel that’s available. This will help us to achieve our goals of renewable, reliable, stable price, and cheap price,” UMaine Sustainability Director Dan Dixon told WABI.
