ACP Statement on Governor Healey Announcement at Offshore Wind Conference

American Clean Power Association (ACP) CEO Jason Grumet released this statement after Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey announced during her remarks at ACP’s Offshore WINDPOWER 2023 conference New England’s first offshore wind multi-state coordination memorandum of understanding?(MOU). Under the MOU, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island will procure an additional 6,000 megawatts of offshore wind: 

“Tough challenges require creative solutions, and we applaud Governor Healey and Governors Ned Lamont of Connecticut and Dan McKee of Rhode Island for joining together as a region to embrace the clean energy future. Today’s announcement is a bold way to drive cost efficiencies for projects across a broad swath of New England while promoting economic growth, enhancing security, and driving down energy costs. These states continue to establish themselves as leaders in clean energy, attracting investment, revitalizing domestic ports, developing domestic supply chains, and creating good-paying jobs across the region.”
