The Maine Fuel Board and the Maine Electricians Board entered into a Memo of Understanding dated 10/23/13. This memo allows for a licensed fuel technician to do the wiring for a ductless mini-split heat pump. Moving forward, we will permit Ductless Mini Splits according to the way it utilizes energy.
