Wind energy in Maryland … in MY backyard?

Wind energy investments may help Maryland reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and achieve its objective of 20% renewable energy by 2022 (Renewable Portfolio Standard)

Presentation includes:

  • New net metering aggregation rules for municipalities, farms and non profits
  • Challenges we face: net metering, financial incentives, ordinances and statewide information/communications resource sharing

Armed now with new Department of Energy, National Renewable Energy (NREL) wind maps and recent net metering aggregation rules, wind energy development may become more apparent from the ocean and Chesapeake Bay to the mountains of western Maryland.

Join our presenter, Andrew Gohn, Acting Clean Energy Director for Maryland Energy Administration (see bio below), for this FREE webinar (the 4th of 6) in the Maryland Clean Energy Center Boot Camp series designed to help your municipality and local leadership understand the ropes about Energy Assurance Plans.
