Portland is taking a major step toward cutting its carbon footprint


Portland will lead a new effort under its climate change goals to outfit city residents and businesses with discounted electric heat pumps, solar panels, electric vehicle chargers and other clean energy upgrades.

It’s a major municipal step toward cutting the carbon footprint of Maine’s buildings, also a priority in the state’s Climate Action Plan, which seeks to make the state carbon-neutral by 2045.

Portland put out a request for vendors to join the “Electrify Everything!” initiative last week, looking for companies to offer volume discounts on emissions-cutting technologies that could be rolled out early next year. The exact costs are yet to be determined, but city sustainability director Troy Moon said Portland will only cover marketing for the program, using existing funds.
