What this seems to say is "if we took more money from you then we were supposed to, it looks like we'll have to give it back". Is there a way we can nominate Baldacci for a magnanimity award? Perhaps the biggest story here is that it took five years for the Maine media to reveal that Baldacci joined the Avangrid board back in 2014.
Note also that since 2012, Baldacci has been with Portland law firm Pierce Atwood , a company that is no stranger to wind power and transmission, both pushed by Baldacci while governor. https://www.pierceatwood.com/practice-areas/energy-infrastructure-p...
Ex-Gov. Baldacci, board member of CMP’s parent, says company should make customers whole
Former Maine Gov. John Baldacci, who serves on the board of Central Maine Power Co.’s parent company, said Friday that if systemic problems led to the utility over-billing customers, it should act immediately to “make those customers whole.”
Baldacci said in an interview that he couldn’t detail internal board discussions, but he feels strongly that CMP should work to reconcile with customers who may have been unfairly over-billed while continuing efforts to rebuild trust.
“The most important thing to me is to make sure that this is all done publicly, and as transparently as possible,” said Baldacci, who was Maine’s governor from 2003-2011 and served in the U.S. House of Representatives for four terms before that.
Since 2014, Baldacci has sat on the board of Avangrid, Inc., which owns CMP under the corporate umbrella of the Spanish multinational energy giant Iberdrola.
