Operation Free member and Iraq War veteran Andrew Campbell knows the dangers of America’s addiction to oil. That is why he, along with the environmental group Maine Citizens For Clean Energy, led the way in unveiling strong energy independence goals for the state of Maine.
“The question is if we don’t do it now then when are we? We know that oil is a finite resource and we know while we’re using it we continue to give money to countries that don’t have American interest at heart,” he said.
The new announcement adds to Maine’s strong history of supporting the environment:
“The group is calling for an initiative that would require electric utilities to invest in energy efficiency to cut down on costs. A standard would also be set: 20% of Maine’s power to come from new renewable energy sources by 2020.”
