Energy is singled out for its exceptional potential impact on Maine's economic vitality. Present fragmented policy seems to be focused on creating barriers to entry rather than cost competitive energy for Maine homes, transportation and industry. Maine can and should become a dominant energy producer, provider and exporter of energy and should strive to establish the most cost-competitive base load electricity supply in the northeastern United States.

All options, from Maine's indigenous renewable energy sources to nuclear and offshore oil exploration to imported fossil fuel, LNG and Canadian Hydro, should be on Maine's energy table. The private sector should play the lead role. Limited and carefully selected coastal energy production sites and energy corridors should be expanded, all subject to constructive and rigorous environmental and safety regulations.
