By working with homeowners, contractors, developers and utility providers, MEA reduces energy costs for citizens with simple efficiency solutions - such as replacing standard light bulbs with compact fluorescent ones - to more complex renewable energy solutions - such as installing solar photovoltaic systems. Whether it's through renewable energy grants or our partnership with nonprofits to fund energy efficiency upgrades, like the Low-to-Moderate Income Grant Program that awarded $10 million dollars in 2017. Maryland Energy Administration connects Maryland residents to vital resources for maintaining a sustainable energy grid into the 21st century and beyond. To get started:


Residential Success

Maryland Energy Administration gives Maryland residents opportunity. Maximizing energy efficiency and generating renewable energy can be an expensive proposition, but MEA grants and loans help homeowners close the gap between thinking "green" and going "green." One Allegany County couple was able to use a Windswept Grant to install a fully operational wind turbine system, which generates enough electricity to cover all of their power needs. Similarly, a Grasonville family used MEA funds to harness solar power, which generates about half the energy consumed by their household. Read these and other MEA success stories​.​​​
