Clean Energy Now

Baltimore County and Maryland would be best served by an energy policy that shifts from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Along with the Maryland Climate Coalition, Colleen agrees that at least 50 percent of Maryland’s Electricity should come from renewable sources by 2030. Progress so far has been stymied, but Colleen supports the Maryland Clean Energy Jobs Initiative and others in saying that the threat to our planet and to our state is too great to wait any longer to find solutions to global warming, energy insecurity, and the economy of the future. As leaders in the field of renewable energy, Baltimore County and the state of Maryland can become both attractive for businesses, sources for good high-paying jobs and a model for how to thrive in our rapidly warming world.
