Critical Commentary

Maine calls for a publicly-owned utility, Maine Power Delivery Authority, given the unreliable service and high rates from other local utilities. However, there is a lot of uncertainty that surrounds the consumer-owned utility. The proposed amendment also institutes a task force to consider economic output, the tax structure, how the utility would fit-in New England distribution grid. Many do say public utility won't work but it could also be because a public utility goes against the interests of for-profit entities.
