The article reports on the extension of rebates for solar and wind installations in Maine. The author stated that the extension is for grid-tied wind energy systems installed after January 1, 2009, with a two-year extension of rebates for photovoltaic (PV) systems through December 31, 2010. In addition, wind-energy systems and PV systems must be installed by master electricians as stated by the Maine Public Utilities Commission (PUC).
