Earlier this month, a package of three bills to overhaul the state’s energy policies was quietly introduced in the Senate.
If adopted, the legislation would require 100 percent of the state’s electricity to come from renewable sources by 2050. Another bill would set a target of having 3,500 megawatts of offshore wind capacity by 2030. The third measure would require power suppliers to achieve aggressive goals for storing energy.
