Dear Maryland Friends of Offshore Wind,
Maryland’s Public Service Commission will hold an unprecedented public hearing Saturday, January 18th that could decide the future of renewable offshore wind energy in Maryland.
We need your help.
Supporters of clean energy like you are encouraged to save the date – Saturday, January 18th, 2020 – and plan to speak briefly in support of offshore wind at the commission hearing.
PSC Hearing on Renewable Offshore Wind
Saturday January 18th 2020
Ocean City Convention Center
4001 Coastal Highway
Ocean City MD 21842
Offshore wind is poised to support an estimated 25,000 new “green collar” jobs and $1.5 billion in income in Maryland, but opponents are determined to stop this transition to carbon-free energy. Clean energy opponents will attend the hearing and urge the Commission to stop renewable offshore wind in its tracks.
Can we count on you attending January 18th? If so, here is how you can help:
- RSVP to attend the hearing at this link.
- Share this Save the Date with fellow clean energy supporters in Maryland and encourage them to attend.
- You also may file written comments if you are not able to attend the meeting in person. All comments must be submitted before Friday January 31, 2020. This can be sent via mail to:
Mr. Andrew S Johnston, Executive Secretary
Maryland Public Service Commission
William Donald Shafer Tower
6 Saint Paul Street, 16th Floor
Baltimore, MD 21202
- Please reference “Case No. 9629, Skipjack Offshore Energy, LLC”
- You can also make comments on-line at the PSC website.
While the hearing agenda is limited to the size of wind turbines proposed for Maryland’s two existing projects, make no mistake: Opponents of clean energy are using this hearing to undo your hard work as a clean energy leader by stopping these renewable offshore wind projects in Maryland.
Thank you for your leadership.
