Background:

If our state is going to hit 100% renewable energy we are going to need offshore wind.  The first step in bringing offshore wind to any state is requesting a task force from the federal government (because offshore wind farms are technically in federal waters). Only the governor can request a task force. We have been pushing for Governor Sununu to request this task force since 2016. Here is a quick history:

  • In the Summer of 2016 then candidate Sununu said he would move forward if there was community support.
  • From February of 2017 to March of 2018 we worked with 20 cities and towns to pass resolutions and warrant articles urging the Governor to move forward on offshore wind.
  • In April of 2018 over 100 people delivered letters from the twenty towns that passed resolutions, legislators, and businesses to the Governor.
  • Since then we haven’t heard a peep from the Governors’ office about offshore wind, even after repeated request.

Take Action

In October and November Gov. Sununu will be on the campaign trail trying to win votes. This is a huge opportunity to confront the governor directly about offshore wind. If you’re interested in attending an upcoming event with other 350NH leaders to ask the governor a question about offshore wind please fill out the form below.
