    Tell the Maryland House of Delegates: Pass the Clean Energy Jobs Act

    The Maryland House of Delegates is considering a bill that would require the state to source at least 50 percent of its electricity from clean energy by 2030 and provide a path to 100 percent clean energy by 2040. The bill already passed the Senate, but now it faces a tougher battle. Tell the Maryland House of Delegates: Pass the Clean Energy Jobs Act.

    This bill would:

    • Require Maryland to ensure that 50 percent of its electricity is sourced from renewable energy by 2030, extending the state’s current mandate of 25 percent by 2020.1
    • Fund small, minority-, women- and veteran-owned businesses in clean energy.2
    • Provide millions of dollars to workforce development programs, creating thousands of jobs and making the state a national leader in renewable energy.3
    • Cut carbon emissions equivalent to taking 1.7 million cars off the road each year.4
    • Generate hundreds of millions of dollars in annual economic benefits to the state.5

    Taking action on state-level campaigns goes a long way because state officials hear from the public far less often than federal officials do. Sign now and we will deliver your signature to your state delegates.
