Harnessing the Wind

The time is now to chart a new course for New England’s energy future. Home-grown sources like wind energy and solar power can provide good local jobs, increase our energy security, and end our addiction to the dirty, outdated fossil fuels that are damaging our climate.

CLF in Action

With wind energy developed in the right way and in the right places, we can oust dirty, polluting fossil fuel power from New England for good. Wind is an essential building block of our clean energy future – one that’s good for our environment, protects our health, and creates well-paying jobs here at home.

CLF is working with policymakers and industry leaders to push for stronger policies and incentives that will bolster reliable and affordable wind power across New England. We’re advocating for clean energy bills in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and participating actively in the regional ocean planning process, which will identify areas best suited for offshore wind farms.

We also spearheaded efforts with wind developers and partner organizations to develop innovative agreements that protect marine areas and wildlife, including endangered North Atlantic right whales, when offshore wind projects are being built.
