Portland moves closer to tracking energy use by major users

The Associated Press

 

 

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine's largest city is considering becoming one of a growing number of cities that attempt to track and reduce energy consumption by large commercial and residential users.

The Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/29E9rAW ) reports the City Council might consider an ordinance that would require some buildings to report energy use to the city. The council referred that ordinance to its Energy and Sustainability Committee on Wednesday.

The sustainability committee is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the proposed ordinance on July 20.

The Greater Portland Council of Governments also wants to establish a national voluntary energy reporting program in Portland. The program is called 2030 District.

Both programs would collect data about the use of energy sources such as electricity, natural gas or heating oil.
