Representative Roy provided us with an overview of the offshore wind bill (H.4524) passed by the house last week. Massachusetts has the largest offshore wind potential of any state in the country which will be key to making the state more energy independent. We also heard about the outlook for other initiatives this session including support for electric vehicles and building retrofits to all-electric heating.
Following the presentation, Rep. Roy answered several questions on a range of topics which provided additional clarity on the outlook for climate legislation this session and moving forward.
