To educate and advocate for offshore wind development so that all Marylanders and Delawareans have greater access to renewable energy, good-paying offshore wind jobs, and a healthier environment.
The Positive Impact of Offshore Wind:
As Marylanders, we like to think of ourselves as being at the vanguard of technological and social progress. Often, we have been, producing the world’s first dredger in 1783, developing the first gas streetlamp in America in 1817, and giving birth to American railroading in 1828. Though we have occasionally been resistant to rapid social change, we still managed to produce many great civil rights leaders, have taken steps to protect the Chesapeake Bay and have striven to expand business participation among minorities and women.
Parts of the developer's bid are contingent on the Maryland Public Service Commission awarding the company a certain amount of offshore wind renewable energy credits.
The Business Network for Offshore Wind and The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) have launched the Foundation 2 Blade (FTB) programme for Maryland businesses to help them expand into offshore wind industry.
