to all those involved in the passing of the Maryland Offshore Wind Energy Act of 2013!!!
I do not believe there is anything I could say about this bill, that has not already been said. I started following the campaign as an intern for the Maryland League of Conservation Voter‘s 3 years ago. This time last week I was glued to the Foundation’s twitter feed, monitoring the updates activists were providing as the bill was being debated on the Senate floor.
This is a significant win for the state of Maryland and a step forward in meeting our greenhouse gas reduction goals.
THANK YOU to all those who worked throughout this campaign and CONGRATULATIONS on your win!!!
Now it is time for the implementation of this bill and for the achievement of another renewable energy win.
