ACORE Applauds Maryland’s Historic Passage of the Climate Solutions Now Act of 2022

Statement From Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy:

“ACORE applauds the Maryland legislature for passing the Climate Solutions Now Act, one of the nation’s most robust climate and clean energy policies. The bill requires Maryland to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across all sectors by 2045, joining only a handful of other states to set economy-wide emissions reduction goals. The legislation also includes critical environmental justice provisions, including the creation of a state-level working group to ensure a just transition for fossil fuel workers and businesses, along with dedicated funding and targeted resources for communities that have been disproportionately impacted by polluting industries. State legislatures across the country should look to Maryland, and the Climate Solutions Now Act, as a model for legislative action that meets the moment and puts us on track for a sustainable, equitable future.”
