AUGUSTA — Maine’s governor says she will call for a 10-year moratorium on some offshore wind projects to get feedback from fishermen and members of marine industries.
Gov. Janet Mills is a proponent of offshore wind, but many members of the state’s commercial fishing industry have expressed concern about what wind projects could mean for their businesses.
Mills said Monday her proposal would protect fishing businesses within three miles of coastal waters that are managed by the state.
Her proposal would go before the state legislature.
