Gulf of Maine Task Force

ACTION NEEDED: NH Needs to Join Neighboring States in Procuring Offshore Wind!

Please take a moment to sign the petition linked below, put together by a coalition of NH groups including SAPL, telling Governor Sununu to advance offshore wind now! We’re calling on the governor to make offshore wind a priority so we can create thousand of new jobs and stop relying on fossil fuels for future electric power. Will you sign this petition today and pass it along to others, to bring offshore wind to NH?

Petition to Governor Sununu encouraging offshore wind procurement »

I thought we were moving forward with offshore wind! What happened?

The New Hampshire Senate – apparently at the direction of the House Energy Committee – stalled final action on the offshore wind procurement bill this past legislative session after voting for it 23-1, and the Offshore Wind Task Force for the Gulf of Maine has been slow to move forward – holding only ONE meeting almost two years ago!

For more detail on the procurement process, the stalled procurement bill that this action refers to is SB151, sponsored by Senator David Watters of Dover. If this legislation/executive action moves forward, we could eventually see more than one-third of New Hampshire’s electricity use provided from offshore wind, and much of our fossil-fueled electricity displaced by the end of the decade!

If you’d like to take more direct action, we urge you to send a letter directly to Governor Sununu on offshore wind procurement. The Action Network link makes it easy, with sample text and delivery provided, but please personalize/add your own words:
