ABOUT THIS SERIES
Maine relies on home heating oil more than any other state. Ending that costly dependence could improve lives and fight climate change, but it won’t be easy. Low-income Mainers face barriers in joining the state’s push for efficient electric heat pumps, while wood heat raises complex questions about Maine’s carbon balance. This series examined Maine’s reliance on oil, the efforts to transition to new kinds of heat, and the potential for our homes to someday be fossil-free.
