Wind power

America has an almost unlimited resource of wind blowing off our coasts and across our lands, and we can use it to power more of our lives.

Wind power is a key ingredient for a clean and renewable energy future. It’s a huge new harvest from America’s fields, farms and coasts. America produced enough wind energy to power 35 million typical homes in 2021 – 2.7 times as much wind energy as in 2012.

Today the California Energy Commission had planned to adopt their draft goal for 3 GW of offshore wind by 2030 and 10-15GW by 2045, with a potential for going to 20GW by 2050. We have been organizing to push for an even more ambitious goal of 20GW by 2045. We turned out to the meeting with a blown up copy of the full page ad we ran in the SF Chronicle this week, turned in comments from over 1300 Californians and spoke passionately about why we need to go even bigger. The commission took the item off the consent agenda and we are hopeful this indicates their willingness to up the goal!  Here is my testimony:
