Episode Description:

At the end of April, Madison Electric Works will have IGS Solar of Ohio begin installing 80 acres of solar panels to supply all of Madison’s residential and business electrical needs. MEW, as it is known is a locally and publicly owned utility that has affordable and reliable service for over a hundred years. During the last huge ice storm, Madison lost power for a maximum of four hours. CMP and Bangor Hydro were out for up to two weeks or more. This solar move should keep Madison in a very stable condition for many years to come. Another example of the value of maintaining local control of our resources. The whole project should be completed by this September.
