Partnerships are key to shifting energy needs

For this issue’s focus on energy and the environment, Senior Writer Maureen Milliken headed to Indian Township in Washington County, where the Passamaquoddy tribe is looking at ways to develop the area’s economy and create jobs for the 3,200-member nation. Indian Township Enterprises, the tribe’s business arm, plans to build a biomass plant that could produce power, biofuel and activated carbon. It hopes to produce enough energy that it could sell it excess capacity to area municipalities or manufacturers. Maureen’s story starts on Page 20.

Partnerships of this kind are in the works on a large- and small-scale, ranging from CMP’s proposal to build a $950 million transmission line to link Quebec Hydropower to customers in Massachusetts to the Fox Island Power Co.’s selling of excess capacity from its three wind turbines to customers on the mainland. A groundbreaking solar bill signed into law by Gov. Janet Mills also promises to jump start more of these partnerships.
