LEWISTON — Local businessman Adam Lee has been appointed to the board of the Energy and Carbon Savings Trust, which is in charge of distributing money to energy efficiency projects in Maine.

Sharon Reishus, chairwoman of the Maine Public Utilities Commission, announced the appointment Thursday.

The three-member trust allocates funds produced by the auction of carbon allowances under the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, according to a PUC press release. Since its implementation in September 2008, RGGI has generated about $13.5 million.

Lee, who has served as the president of Lee Auto Mall since 1997, also serves as chairman of the recently-formed Efficiency Maine Trust.
