Environment Maine was joined at Becky’s Diner today by Rep. Mike Michaud, Mayor Michael Brennan, Zach Rand, son of diner owner Becky Rand, and other local elected officials and business leaders to release a new report, “Shining Cities: At the Forefront of America’s Solar Energy Revolution.” The report provides a first-of-its-kind comparative look at the growth of solar power in major American cities, including Portland.

With solar module prices coming down, increasing national awareness of solar energy, and a growing legion of solar businesses large and small, solar power is emerging as a mainstream energy solution with widespread benefits for our health, our economy and the environment. Environment Maine's new report, "Shining Cities: At the Forefront of America’s Solar Energy Revolution," explores this trend.
