Advocate for solar in Maryland
While Maryland has a strong solar energy jobs market (5,429 and counting!), we must continue to expand our production of clean, renewable energy for our local clean energy economy to continue to grow. Our current Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) mandates that Maryland will produce 25% of its electricity from renewable sources—including a measly 2.5% from solar—by 2020. But we deserve better. That’s why Solar United Neighbors of Maryland is joining the Clean Energy Jobs Campaign!
The Clean Energy Jobs Campaign will strengthen the local clean energy economy and benefit public health by moving the state’s RPS target to 50% by 2030 and increasing the requirement for in-state solar to 14.5%.
Solar United Neighbors of Maryland has joined Chesapeake Climate Action Network, MDV-Solar Energy Industries Association, and more than 600 local, state, and regional organizations representing diverse constituents and economic interests in supporting this campaign. Will you join us?
