The elections are really heating up in Maryland. From your local elections to the gubernatorial race, voting this fall is going to be more important than ever.

And now, YOU have the opportunity to let your candidates know what you care about most: a clean, healthy, livable future for everyone in Maryland. But, we need your help. How? By using the power of social media to influence your friends – and the candidates running in Maryland, that we can’t wait any longer for progress on clean energy. We’ve seen the climate crisis is fueling extreme weather across the country this year – from floods, hurricanes, wildfires and more. We need to take action NOW in order to make a difference in this fight. Won’t you join us?

More About the Clean Energy Jobs Act: 

The Maryland Clean Energy Jobs Act would ensure that 50% of Maryland’s electricity comes from renewable sources by 2030, building a pathway to a 100% renewable energy future. This same legislation will fund clean energy workforce development to establish career pathways for more Maryland workers to fill this growing industry. The mandate will also invest in clean energy businesses owned by women, veterans, and people of color to ensure that this growing economy is inclusive and just. Lastly, the legislation will phase out incentives for trash incineration in the Renewable Portfolio Standard to move Maryland closer toward being a state powered by the sun. In 2018, we built a coalition of over 650 community, labor, faith, and business groups supporting the CEJA. With 77 cosponsors in the House of Delegates and 24 cosponsors in the Senate during the 2018 General Assembly, we will use that momentum to pass this legislation in the 2019 session.
