9. Heaven forbid the US or the State of Maine actually EXPORT energy to Canada or other states
It's not allowed

We can only IMPORT hydroelectricity from Quebec, natural gas from western Canada, Middle East LNG off-loaded in New Bruswick and uranium from foreign countries.

Can't produce energy here in Maine
