PSR Supports Wind Power for Maryland

February 14, 2011
Annapolis, Maryland

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.

  • Fracking: Harm on the Farm

    Chemical exposures that harm farm animals and wild animals raise concern about health risks for people living near fracking sites, as the animals use the same water and breathe the same air as humans. Another, indirect concern for human health also exists: in multiple known cases of chemical exposure, cows continued to produce dairy and meat for human consumption, although it remained untested for chemical contaminants.
