Advocate for solar in Maryland
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 the Clean Energy Jobs Campaign. Will you join us?
The campaign will grow Maryland’s in-state solar generation six times as part of an ambitious move to meet 50% of our energy needs from renewables by 2030.
By ratcheting up the solar energy that will be produced right here in Maryland, this bill (SB 732 / HB 1453)will benefit all Marylanders in several ways. It will strengthen Maryland solar jobs, supporting one of the most vibrant sectors in our economy and the fastest growing occupation in the nation. It will boost the SREC market by creating new demand for the energy that current and future solar homeowners generate. And it will increase equity and fairness in the solar market for all Marylanders by helping to expand community solar, extending the benefits of solar to community members currently unable to enjoy them.
Maryland’s current RPS mandates only 25% of its electricity comes from renewable sources—including a measly 2.5% from solar—by 2020. We deserve better, and with your help we can get our representatives in Annapolis to act this year! By taking action below, you will be added to our list of supporters and will be notified about future opportunities to support the Clean Energy Jobs campaign.
