Once wind farms are up and running, the fuel is free: Nobody can charge you for the wind. The Atlantic Coast is especially well-suited for wind power, with its strong steady winds, shallow waters and millions of people living close to shore.
There’s no denying that the upfront investment in building and erecting turbines and laying transmission lines is significant, but these investments pay for themselves in the long term, which is why wind projects require a long-term commitment. That’s where our states and governors come in.
State leaders have the power to forge long-term agreements committing their state to get more of their energy from offshore wind. Our Go Big On Offshore Wind campaign is asking the governors of six states, from Maine to Georgia, to make these commitments.
