Clean energy

Clean, renewable energy is within our reach — all we have to do is seize the opportunities around us.

To live greener, healthier lives we need to be using less energy and getting more of our energy from renewable sources like the sun and the wind. The good news is that powering our lives with clean energy is getting easier every day, and the transition away from fossil fuels, toward an economy that runs on renewable energy, is picking up steam. Together we can accelerate the change.

Did You Know?
In 2020, America generated almost four times as much renewable electricity from the sun and the wind as in 2011, with wind and solar now producing 11% of the nation’s electricity.

We are the environment, we do not stand apart from it, it’s our legacy. I want people to realize that not everyone has to speak at a protest, or sit in a lawmaker’s office, or donate $1 million to the cause of saving our environment. Meet movements where you're at now, and go from there. Ken Winship, Member, Environment Maine

Biden promises action on climate change during event at former coal plant

President Joe Biden took his campaign to slow down climate change and speed up our transition to clean energy to the site of the former Brayton Point coal-fired power plant on Wednesday. Brayton Point is now becoming a hub for the development and production of offshore wind technology. During the visit, he announced a new program to develop offshore wind power in the Gulf of Mexico for the first time and indicated that his administration would propose additional executive actions to tackle climate change in the coming days.
