Massachusetts' Deval Patrick Wins "Green Governor of the Year Award" -- First State to Win Federal Approval for Offshore Wind Farms says BE
Date:2/22/2013

Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 22, 2013

Massachusetts Governor Deval L. Patrick (D) today accepted the “Green Governor of the Year Award” for his innovative environmental leadership in 2012.

Patrick earned the honor by driving bipartisan environmental initiatives, public-private partnerships, and visionary legislation that raise the bar for energy efficiency; expand renewable energy infrastructure and usage; grow the clean tech industry and create new jobs; promote green building; and support ecosystem conservation.

“With national policy hitting major roadblocks and traditional trade failing to produce the necessary solutions, the pressure—and opportunity—rests with our state and local leaders,” said Beautiful Earth Group President and CEO Lex Heslin, founder of this Award, in its third year. “We need more governors like Patrick launching win-win initiatives that produce measurable environmental results, while lowering energy costs, creating new jobs and protecting the health of citizens for decades to come.”

Environmental Highlights From Patrick’s Governorship:

  •     Energy Efficiency: Massachusetts ranked #1 for energy efficient in 2011 and 2012 by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy.
  •     Renewable Energy: Massachusetts is poised to become the premier center of offshore wind development in the United States thanks to Governor Patrick’s leadership in supporting the nation’s first offshore wind farm, Cape Wind.
  •     Return on Investment: According to state officials, Massachusetts’ newest energy efficiency programs and incentives are projected to generate nearly $9 billion in benefits from $2.7 billion in investments over the next three years.
  •     Green Jobs: Green jobs increased 11.2 percent from 2011 to 2012.
