Hundreds Congregate to Support Offshore Wind Technology in Maryland

More than 300 Marylanders packed into the Westin Hotel to support the push for putting an offshore wind farm off the coast of Ocean City.

As dozens of people marched towards the Capitol building in Annapolis, you could almost feel supporters of offshore wind energy riding the recent wave of momentum toward making renewable energy a reality in the Old Line State.

Many activists believe 2011 could be the year legislators here will pass a law instructing power companies to enter into long term purchasing agreements with offshore wind developers thus securing thousands of green collar jobs in Maryland.

Doing so would put Maryland at the front of the line alongside Delaware and Massachusetts in the country's race to go green.
