Regional agreement on offshore wind reached!

The federal government and 11 states on the East Coast—including all coastal New England states—launched a federal-state partnership on offshore wind last week! This initiative focuses on driving a domestic clean energy supply chain and workforce development, critical to transitioning off fossil fuels. See the White House Fact sheet with details about this important development.

LWVMA is proud to be a part of this broad coalition effort working to promote clean, non-emitting  renewable energy to our power grid while supporting workers and those most heavily impacted by the high economic and health cost of polluting fossil fuels. See the coalition’s letter in support of a joint solicitation for offshore wind transmission here.
