    Energy Efficient Maryland

    http://www.marylandpirg.org/MD.asp?id2=32539

    Maryland PIRG’s Top Priority

    Maryland PIRG is calling on Gov. O’Malley to reduce Maryland’s energy use 20 percent by 2020 by using the energy we already create more wisely. By prioritizing simple solutions like insulating our homes and businesses better and making more efficient appliances, Maryland can get back on track with reducing its energy use.

    How You Can Help:

    Send an e-mail to Gov. O’Malley and ask him to reduce Maryland’s energy use by 20 percent by 2020.

    Groups coordinate in drafting green building standards
    5/30 Waste News article at:

    http://www.wastenews.com/headlines2.html?id=1180543206

    A proposed standard for minimum green building practices is being released for public review and comment. The standard is being developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers in conjunction with the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America and the U.S. Green Building Council.

    The standard will cover areas such as energy efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, materials and resources and indoor environmental quality.

    The proposed standard will be available only during public review periods. To read the addenda or to comment, visit http://www.ashrae.org/publicreviews

    Sustainable City: Hope for a Sustainable World

    May 07 Urbanite article by Mare Cromwell

    Describes Baltimore as being recognized “on a local level…as a leader in energy efficiency measures,” includuing retro-fits for various fire, police, municipal buildings and schools for more efficient energy; electric cars in the city fleet and flex-fuel cars in the police fleet; and a planned City biofuels pump for that fleet by middle of 2007 (paralleling efforts by the Biodiesel Coop).

    Also describes Baltimore as a “leader in the adaptive reuse movement, an approach that creatively renovates derelict buildings.”

    Windswept Grant Program

    On October 26, the Maryland Energy Administration announced a new initiative to provide funding for small scale wind energy systems. The MEA Windswept Grant Program can assist residential or non- residential Marylanders in funding these projects.

    Grant amounts are $1500/kw for a maximum grant amount for Residential Wind Systems: $3000

    For more information, call 1-800-723-6374 or e-mail meainfo@energy.state.md.us.

    The MEA release: http://www.energy.maryland.gov/press/102607_windswept_pr.pdf

    Annapolis, MD – The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) is pleased to announce that we will be accepting
    applications for small scale wind energy systems from individuals, businesses and local governments beginning
    November 1, 2007.

    The Windswept Grant Program can help offset a portion of the cost of small scale wind energy projects. A limited number
    of grants are available to Marylanders to install eligible wind energy systems of at least 1 kW for residential properties
    and 1.5 kW for non-residential properties. Grant amounts are $1500/kw for a maximum grant amount of:

    Residential Wind Systems: $3000
    Nonresidential Wind Systems $5000

    The Windswept Grant Program encourages the development of renewable energy distributed generation, such as small
    scale wind energy systems, throughout the State as well as reduces our electricity demand from conventional power
    generating facilities. Renewable sources of energy are important to the future of Maryland’s environmental quality and
    economic development. This program also underscores Governor O’Malley’s Governor O’Malley’s pledge to make
    Maryland the “engine of the renewable energy economy”.

    Applicants are encouraged to apply early as funding is limited. Also, applicants should become familiar with the program
    terms and conditions and eligibility criteria prior to applying. There is a significant amount of supporting documentation
    required along with the application forms. For more information on wind energy opportunities, visit the Maryland Energy
    Administration’s Windswept Grant Program at
