Update: July 1, 2012
To help Maryland homeowners invest in clean energy, MEA provides Residential Clean Energy Grants at “flat award/project” incentive levels outlined in the chart below. MEA has recalculated the Clean Energy Grant incentives based on several factors including available funding levels; economies of scale; a desire for more equitable distribution of funds; the cost of clean energy technologies, capacity factors, and potential annual production; and data analysis from past Clean Energy awards.
|Resource Conversion Technology||Installed Capacity Range||Flat Award|
|Solar Photovoltaic (PV)||1-20 kW||$1,000/project|
|Solar Water Heating||10-100 sq. ft.||$500/project|
|Geothermal Heating & Cooling (GHC)||1-10 tons||$3,000/project|
Grants are allocated on a first come/first served basis across technologies and are subject to change in amount and existence based on funding availability. A home owner may receive awards that aggregate up to the maximum award per technology per fiscal year (from July 1 of any given year through June 30 of the next).
Please give Ground Loop a call with any questions you may have on the Energy Grant submission guidelines.
