Climate change is happening, bringing real damage every day. We are facing an urgent need to slow climate change by moving away from polluting energy sources and embracing wind, solar and other clean-energy sources. The good news is that smart policy choices have established Maryland as a leader in the transition to emission-free, sustainable energy sources. Under policies we helped craft in the General Assembly, we are moving to bring large-scale offshore wind energy to the state. The Maryland Public Service Commission (PSC) has carefully considered two firms’ plans and approved major new wind farms to be built more than a dozen miles off the Maryland coast.
