2018 New Hampshire Town Warrant Article
supporting Offshore Wind in the Gulf of Maine
In March of 2018, 20 cities and towns in New Hampshire passed warrant articles and resolutions asking Governor Sununu to request a task force from the Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management (BOEM) to request a federal task force to study offshore wind in the Gulf of Maine. In March of 2019, we would like to see far more warrant articles on the ballot!
Since 2016, we have been working with 350NH to raise awareness of and support for offshore wind in the Gulf of Maine. Governor Sununu has stated that he will take action to initiate the required study if we can demonstrate support for offshore wind. Despite the 20 warrant articles and resolutions, he has not yet responded.
We ask that you share this warrant article with your town's selectmen, ask for their support, and have this warrant article on the ballot at town meeting this spring.
You will find more information as well as a printable brochure below. Please talk frequently about this project and how it would boost NH's economy and bring tens of thousands of jobs to the region.
Thank you friends, for your continued support. This is a very exciting prospect for the Granite State that means the creation of many clean energy jobs, economic benefits and abundant renewable energy!
