AUGUSTA, Maine— A bill to halt new Maine solar regulations so far lacks the support needed to survive the Gov. Paul LePage's veto.
The Maine House voted 90-54 Wednesday on Republican Sen. Thomas Saviello's bill.
State utility regulators released solar billing rules this year that drew criticism from solar proponents and skeptics such as LePage.
The Maine Public Utilities Commission said it would maintain current rules for existing solar customers for 15 years while reducing certain bill credits over time.
