Solar + storage in Maryland
What is solar + battery storage?
Solar systems with battery backup can provide individuals and communities with much needed resiliency in the face of natural disasters.
Progress in Maryland
In 2017, Maryland became the first state to pass a storage income tax credit. The bill (SB0758 and HB0490) passed by wide margins. The governor approved the bill on May 4, 2017. This new tax credit could help to make Maryland a leader in distributed storage across the country.
