The 2015 Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence will be presented by the Governor and the Acting Commissioner in a ceremony at INCON offices in Saco. INCON was founded in 1978 and is currently the leading developer and manufacturer of intelligent online monitors for the power utility, hydroelectric and industrial markets. The company's engineers have designed a monitor that detects leaks of SF6 (the most potent greenhouse gas) far earlier than any existing systems. This innovation will help protect the environment not only in the United States, but also on a global scale.
The Governor's Environmental Excellence Award program was created to honor businesses, not-for profit organizations, public entities and new ventures for their extraordinary efforts to protect and improve Maine's environment.
