Going big on offshore wind with big ads and big posters

Today the California Energy Commission had planned to adopt their draft goal for 3 GW of offshore wind by 2030 and 10-15GW by 2045, with a potential for going to 20GW by 2050. We have been organizing to push for an even more ambitious goal of 20GW by 2045. We turned out to the meeting with a blown up copy of the full page ad we ran in the SF Chronicle this week, turned in comments from over 1300 Californians and spoke passionately about why we need to go even bigger. The commission took the item off the consent agenda and we are hopeful this indicates their willingness to up the goal!

One of the state’s largest potential clean energy resources isn’t “in” California at all, but rather just off the coast. Offshore wind energy has been generating clean electricity in other parts of the world for decades and California is taking the opening steps toward unlocking its massive potential.
