Lawmakers: Maryland has made a far-reaching, bipartisan commitment to offshore wind energy

April 13, 2023

Before adjourning, the General Assembly took a major step toward making Maryland a leader in the emerging offshore wind industry.

The new goal, 8.5 gigawatts, will produce enough electricity to power approximately 3 million Maryland homes. The measure lays out a framework to proactively strengthen our power grid infrastructure and sets up a novel offshore wind procurement process to benefit ratepayers.
