The Community Wind Grant Program (CWGP) provides grants to encourage the development of community scale wind projects in Maryland. The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) defines a community wind project as “a distributed wind energy project that benefits a local community.”
The program is open to businesses, non-profits, and State, Local, and Municipal governments and their agencies/institutions on a first come, first served basis. Projects that are either purchased or owned by a third party are eligible for the Community Wind Grant Program. In fiscal year 2019 (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019), the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) has a combined budget of up to $1 million available for the Residential and Community Wind Grant Programs. All Wind grants are subject to funding availability.
