    September 18, 2023 - States News Service


      The following information was released by the American Clean Power Association (ACP):

      Today, American Clean Power Association (ACP) Chief Executive Officer Jason Grumet issued the following statement after six coastal governors sent a letter to President Biden urging federal action to support the growing offshore wind industry:

      "Northeastern states have long recognized the value of an American offshore wind industry in meeting our growing power needs with reliable and homegrown energy, creating tens of thousands of good-paying American jobs, saving lives by reducing air pollution, and cutting greenhouse gas emissions in the face of a mounting climate crisis. This letter comes at a pivotal time, with the industry seeking to scale up rapidly but meeting headwinds due to inflation, supply chain constraints, and permitting delays. The success of offshore wind development in these states will go a long way towards determining whether we achieve the Biden Administration's 30 GW of offshore wind by 2030 objective.

      "ACP echoes these six governors' call and will continue working with the Biden Administration to fully deploy the tools provided by the Inflation Reduction Act and address bottlenecks in the federal permitting process hindering the industry's ability to meet the state and federal deployment goals ACP also joins these states in urging the White House to support Senators Cassidy and Whitehouse's RISEE Act, which will provide hundreds of millions of dollars to states adjacent to offshore wind leases to help coastal communities that are on the front lines of climate change."
