US Wind Joins Maryland Governor in Signing of Pivotal Power Act into Law

US Wind, Inc. (US Wind) CEO Jeff Grybowski joined Governor Wes Moore for his signing of the Promoting Offshore Wind Energy Resources (POWER) Act of 2023 into law at Tradepoint Atlantic in Baltimore, releasing the following statement.

“Governor Moore and the Maryland General Assembly’s monumental vision is now Maryland law and we’re hitting the ground running to help achieve its clean energy goals,” said Jeff Grybowski, US Wind CEO. “With the backing of the POWER Act, Maryland is on a clear track to lead the nation in offshore wind manufacturing, jobs and energy generation that will benefit our state for decades to come.”

Passed by the Maryland General Assembly April 10, the law will quadruple Maryland’s offshore wind generation goals from about 2 GW to 8.5 GW by 2031, improve its transmission infrastructure, and provide a pathway to future procurement of offshore wind energy in the state. The law also ensures that offshore wind projects provide equitable opportunities for local unions and minority, women, service-disabled, and veteran-owned businesses to join in Maryland’s ambitious clean energy future.
