Les Otten is considering a career change. Again. The former head and founder of the American Skiing Company and current owner of Maine Energy Systems, a wood pellet and furnace company based in Bethel, Otten is considering a run for governor. In the meantime, Otten’s wood-based company aims to draw business by converting some of the 80 percent of Maine homes and businesses currently relying on oil-based heating systems to wood-pellet furnaces.
