Ongoing Advocacy work

We are working on:

  • Dis-incentivizing or banning gas hook-ups in new housing and other new buildings in Howard County. The long-term goal is all-electric buildings. A first step is keeping gas out of new buildings.

  • Stopping new fracked-gas infrastructure, such as pipelines.

  • Promoting Community Choice Energy: We are educating our representatives and the public with the goal of having CCE in Howard County,

  • Supporting wind and solar to replace fossil fuel energy. Promoting solar and community solar.

  • Participating in the development of Howard County's new Climate Action Plan: We submitted recommendations and will have more opportunities to shape this document. The Howard County Council will need to pass this plan as legislation.

  • Eliminating single-use plastic: We are continuing the work on the plastic crisis at the local, state, and national levels and in collaboration with Less Plastic Please.
