Get Maine Climate Right is an initiative of Industrial Energy Consumer Group (IECG), an incorporated non-profit trade association of energy-conscious Maine manufacturers deeply involved in the evolution of Maine energy policy. IECG was there at the negotiating table, in the hearing rooms, and during the legislative sessions, fighting for positive energy change at each major inflection point in Maine’s recent energy history.
IECG’s first-hand operational energy experience and data-driven approach have helped sweeping energy reforms succeed when they might otherwise have failed. The successes have benefitted not just Maine manufacturers but society at large. Now IECG wants to use its decades of energy experience to help Get Maine Climate Right.
