Maryland Energy Administration Highlights!

MEA distributes hundreds of millions of dollars throughout the state to stimulate energy efficiency upgrades and renewable energy production. Those dollars fund significant returns toward Governor Martin O’Malley’s EmPower Maryland energy goals, which effects the lives of real Maryland citizens. To better understand where those dollars go and to see how they promote a Smart, Green & Growing Maryland, read the following MEA success stories and highlights:
