Why Renewable Energy?

Wind and solar are inexhaustible American energy resources that grow the economy and clean the environment. Affordable, predictable electricity generation from wind and solar provides essential cost savings and reliability services to power the 21st century U.S. economy. Further developing our renewable energy resources helps us all breathe easier by reducing toxic air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change. The growth of renewable energy technologies in the Mid-Atlantic region has and will continue to be an economic development driver, bringing private investment and well-paying jobs to the region.
