4. Until, of course, the gas runs out...
Of course, everybody in Maine lives on the family estate fueled by wood fires, sustainably harvested from oodles and oodles of acres, but when the Sable Island natural gas fields run out - and they will - well, let's put it this way, they ain't gonna live off solar toys.

The percentage of electricity generated in Maine rose from 39.9% in 1990 to 66% in 2005.

They will burn coal in Maine or they'll live in the dark - rich yuppie brats excepted.
