Spotlight on Solar

[SOLAR] The Baldacci administration wants to jump start a solar-energy industry in Maine, with the goal of covering 50,000 roofs with panels that use the sun to heat water or produce electricity. Following the lead of 26 other states, the administration would use rebates, sales-tax exemptions and tax credits to create incentives for home and small-business owners to buy solar products. The rebates would come from an existing charge that electric customers pay on their monthly bills. Rebates would be capped at $500,000 a year.
