Maine Won't Wait Dashboard and Interactive Map

Ask a Question

  • This interactive resource provides updated information about climate actions and investments throughout Maine and updates on various sustainability goals set by the state.
  • Each goal provides a graph of the annual progress towards the goal and the map provides details about each project or grant.
Teaching Tips


  • The map shows the approximate location of green projects and funding for green energy projects.
  • Students can track the progress of projects such as home weatherization, heat pump installations, and community resilience programs.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Students should have a basic understanding of how energy use can create greenhouse gas emissions.
  • You may need to zoom in before clicking on the different icons on the map in order to see them all.


  • Economics classes can discuss the effects of tax incentives, grants, and discounts on low-energy appliances, weatherization products, and renewable energy technology to households and the economy.
  • Science classes can discuss the climate benefits of conserving land that protects the ecosystem services, forests, grasslands, or other natural environments.
  • This resource can be used in math classes that are practicing making and reading graphs or that are learning how to analyze data gathered over time.
  • This could be a great bell-ringer for classes discussing state initiatives that support green jobs, green energy, or energy efficiency.
