video: 3 Former Energy Secretaries Endorse Baker’s Hydropower Legislation

Thursday, March 24, 2016

 

On Tuesday, Governor Charlie Baker received the bipartisan support of three former secretaries of Energy and Environmental Affairs, Maeve Vallely-Bartlett, Rick Sullivan and Ian Bowles, for the administration's efforts to diversity the state's energy portfolio through the procurement of cost-effective, hydropower generation. 

“Hydro power was a major centerpiece of the Greenhouse Gas Plan that we signed off on in 2010 and Governor Patrick began pushing for and I really commend Governor Baker and his team for continuing to make a big push," said Bowles. 

 “The policy is right and it’s balanced and it makes sense. It makes sense from an environmental point of view. As Ian indicated, this was always part of the Global Warming Solutions Act and the steps Massachusetts was going to take to meet the most aggressive goals in the country," added Sullivan. 

Finally, Vallely-Bartlett added, “the Baker Administration has moved forward very comfortably, very strongly on having a combination of energy resources to bring economic stability to our energy crisis as well as meet the goals of the Global Warming Solutions Act.”

These announcements followed a State House meeting between Governor Baker, current Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Matthew Beaton and his predecessors. 

 “It speaks to the importance of this topic and how it transcends politics and it is the right thing for the Commonwealth to move forward," said Beaton.
