From the Governor

If you think that clean energy doesn’t equal jobs, you couldn’t be more wrong …This is the future I’ve been talking about harnessing. And we can either get on board or get left behind. Ultimately, our motivation for advancing clean energy should be preserving the land we are so very blessed to call home so that Louisiana will not be washed away.

Gov. John Bel Edwards
