Solar Legislation Pending in Maryland Senate

I’ve gotten a bunch of e-mails about this legislation to accelerate Maryland’s solar portion of the renewable portfolio standard.  I’m re-posting the e-mail from the MD Sierra Club below.  If you’re a Maryland resident, please take a moment and contact your State Senator about this.

We need your help! This week, your legislators will be voting on expanding the development of solar energy in Maryland. This will make solar energy cheaper and easier to buy. Help increase our access to clean, renewable energy by contacting your legislator today and asking them to vote FOR solar!

Governor O’Malley is sponsoring the bill, entitled:Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard – Solar Energy, (SB 277) which will ramp up the development of solar power in Maryland.  Unfortunately, the utility companies are fighting hard to keep us chained to dirty fossil fuels.

This important bill has already passed the Senate.  Now it needs to pass the House before Governor O’Malley can sign it into law. But there is less than a week left in this legislative session, so we need to act now.

Please join us in asking our representatives to lead the way to a cleaner energy future and to vote YES on SB 277.

Thank you for all you do,

Alana Wase
