A breakthrough for U.S. wind power

A breakthrough for U.S. wind power

The Biden administration has promised to build up the offshore wind industry, and this week it began to make good on that pledge by granting final approval to the nation’s first large-scale offshore wind farm, about 15 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.

The project is significant not only for the amount of energy it’s expected to generate — 800 megawatts, or enough to power about 400,000 homes — but for the signal it sends about roughly a dozen other offshore wind projects along the Atlantic Coast.

Tell GE: Reinvest in American Jobs and Help Save our Planet

As an industry leader, GE has an opportunity to build a better future for our communities, and our planet. Our future cannot be secure until it is sustainable. By harnessing our natural resources and the economy of tomorrow through clean wind energy, GE can catalyze the creation of tens of thousands of good, clean, green jobs right here in America.

GE’s business model is increasingly over-reliant on outsourcing, and the impact on our environment is dire.

In Schenectady at the GE power plant, the highly skilled workforce builds turbines that power our national electric grid. The workers in Schenectady stand ready to join in green manufacturing production as well - building the wind turbines for the future of our green economy. This is a good example of how the company can re-imagine their products while also reinvesting in green jobs for our communities and the planet. GE manufacturing must include a healthy mix of traditional power and steam turbines as well as green manufacturing that minimizes impact on the environment.

GE has a unique opportunity to save American jobs AND help save the planet.
