The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) has officially announced August 8th as the deadline for public comments on the Draft Request for Proposal (RFP) to develop offshore wind energy for Connecticut. Given the small window for public comments, the CT Roundtable on Climate and Jobs is set to host an informative offshore wind forum on August 2nd, to get CT residents and workers involved before the public comment period closes.
The Roundtable invites the public to join the discussion on offshore wind development alongside legislators, non-profits, and fellow climate justice champions.
All Connecticut residents and workers are welcome to join the conversation to learn more and discuss how our state can ensure fair and accountable offshore wind development.
Topics include the Park Wind City project failure, creating stronger labor agreements, enforcing reporting requirements, ensuring RFP terms & conditions accountability, and how everyday citizens can show support for fair and equitable project labor agreements. This free event is open to the public. Register today to secure your seat.
