PSR Supports Wind Power for Maryland
February 14, 2011
How does wind power save lives? Currently our state
gets nearly 60 percent of its electricity from the combustion of dirty,
lung-damaging coal. Every wind turbine we build off the Atlantic coast of
Maryland means that huge amounts of coal will NOT be burned every day to keep
our lights on.
Studies show that more than 400 men, women and children will be rescued from
premature death if the offshore wind power bill passes in the state’s General
Assembly this year.
Wind power would also save Marylanders nearly $2.5
billion in wrenching health-care costs related to coal-fired electricity.
The wind power bill – SB 237/HB 441 – would
incentivize the construction of a 310 megawatt wind farm ten miles off the
coast of Ocean City – with huge positive impacts on human health in our state.
Please join PSR on February 14, 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.,
to show your support for healthy wind energy.
