Report Summarizes Offshore Wind Movement In Md.

With the clock ticking on the expiration of several key federal tax incentives for the development of offshore wind energy off the Atlantic Coast including a proposal in Maryland, a coalition of stakeholders, environmental groups and lawmakers rallied in Annapolis last week to release a new report outlining how far the effort has come thus far and how far it still has to go.

Called “The Turning Point for Atlantic Offshore Wind Energy,” the report released last Thursday was prepared by the National Wildlife Federation, Environment America Research and Policy Center and many partner organizations including Environment Maryland. The report takes a fresh look at how far offshore wind has advanced in Maryland and the entire Atlantic coast and the work still be done. The coalition of partners released the report during a rally in front of the State House in Annapolis.

The Gov can make reports look wonderful, and say the public supports a policy that they know little about. Like the healthcare law, this is a scam. Let Mehan and Omalley put these windmills on their own homes, and vow to exclusively use the wind power. This a scam equal to the solar farms already in place on route 50. How come they are not touting the amazing energy savings? Total crap from crap politicians!
