ORRINGTON, Maine – Richard Moran of Verona Island, an environmental technician at the
Penobscot Energy Recovery Company (PERC), recently received a diploma for his participation
in the Management Candidate School sponsored by the Maine Joint Environmental Training
Coordinating Committee (JETCC).

Moran and 23 other pollution control professionals attended the school one day each month
from November 2015 to September 2016. The curriculum included personnel management,
supervisory skills, labor relations, budgeting and engineering basics. The school was
coordinated by JETCC with support from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection
(DEP), Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Maine Water Environment
Association (MeWEA) and Maine Water Utilities Association (MWUA).

PERC is a waste-to-energy facility serving communities in eastern, northern, central and midcoast
Maine. The facility receives, processes and incinerates municipal waste, turning it into
renewable electricity and dramatically reducing the volume of waste that needs to go to a
landfill. Earlier this year, PERC received an environmental Merit Award from Region 1 of the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for achieving zero wastewater discharge.
