Md. Governments, Nonprofits Can Compete for Energy Grants
Gov. Martin O'Malley's administration today announced an $8 million program to help local governments and nonprofit groups lower their energy bills with low-interest loans and grants for efficiency projects.
The state is encouraging governments and community groups to compete for money for energy-efficient air-conditioning systems, appliances, retrofits in older buildings and other initiatives.
The program is funded from the proceeds of two auctions of carbon credits approved by the General Assembly last year through the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.
Guidelines for the program can be found on the website of the Maryland Energy Administration.
