In addition to beefing up oversight of the MBTA and hiring 1,000 new staff to improve public transit, Governor Maura Healey also pledged to address global warming and protect our environment by:

  • Doubling the state’s offshore wind and solar power procurement targets, and quadruple energy storage deployment;
  • Electrifying the state’s public vehicle fleet and put a million electric vehicles on the road by 2030; and
  • Committing at least 1 percent of the state’s budget to environmental and energy agencies, triple the budget of the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, and create a “green bank” to invest in resilient infrastructure and to attract new businesses to Massachusetts.
