[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Maine Interfaith Power and Light (MeIPL), a nonprofit, faith-based organization that connects Maine consumers with producers of electricity from renewable sources, recognized the historic implementation of the Kyoto Protocol this week with the introduction of two new renewable power products for Maine residential electricity consumers. Since 2003, MeIPL has offered clean electricity to Maine residents, congregations and small businesses and is now introducing two new products: Maine Clean Power and Maine Clean Power Plus. Maine Clean Power offers electricity generated from a unique hydropower dam certified by the Low Impact Hydro Institute. The Worumbo Dam, located in Lisbon Falls, produces zero-emission electricity while also protecting fish in the Androscoggin River. Maine Clean Power Plus starts with the same zero emission hydropower as Maine Clean Power. In addition, Maine Clean Power Plus draws at least 20% of its generation from wind energy in the form of Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from wind turbines along the East Coast. Although the United States has not yet joined the Kyoto Protocol, many state and local governments are enacting policies to reduce global warming emissions from power plants. Toward this end, Maine State government has purchased MeIPL’s renewable energy for its small residential-sized accounts.
