Environmentalists rally in Annapolis for 50% renewable energy mandate

On the 10th of January, environmentalists gathered in Annapolis, MD to demand that the General Assembly pass the Clean Energy Jobs Act of 2018, mandating that 50% of energy used in the state come from renewables such as solar and wind. The existing Clean Energy Jobs Act calls for 25% renewables by 2020, now climate, environmental justice, and faith activists are asking the state to double down with 50% by 2030.
