Jumpstarting the Maine Offshore Wind Industry with Bold Legislation

May 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Maine environmental and labor groups are working together on two new pieces of legislation to boost the advancement of responsibly developed floating offshore wind in the Gulf of Maine. These bills hold equity and environmental protection at their cores, with provisions requiring environmental mitigation, ensuring strong labor protections, and fostering inclusive benefits for Maine’s most vulnerable communities.

Join this virtual Lunch & Learn event for a deep dive into these bills with Eliza Donoghue, Director of Advocacy and Staff Attorney at Maine Audubon; Francis Eanes, Executive Director of Maine Labor Climate Council; Jack Shapiro, Climate and Clean Energy Director at Natural Resources Council of Maine; Amy Eshoo of Maine Climate Action Now; and Kelt Wilska, Energy Justice Manager at Maine Conservation Voters to learn more!
