Maryland Energy Storage Income Tax Credit - Tax Year 2024


Program Description: The Maryland Energy Storage Income Tax Credit Program ("MESITC Program", "the Program") is available to residential and commercial taxpayers who have installed an energy storage system on their residential or commercial property in Maryland. Under the enabling statute, MEA may award a total of $750,000 in tax credit certificates during a given tax year. Tax credit certificates will be awarded to eligible applicants on a first come, first served basis. Applying does not guarantee that a tax credit will be awarded. Current State law authorizes MEA to offer the program through tax year 2024. 

Initial Residential Funds Depleted - Waitlist
Commercial Tax Credit Allocations - Still Available

See below for more information on funding availability.

As of Wednesday, May 1, 2024, the Maryland Energy Storage Income Tax Credit Program has allocated all initially-budgeted residential tax credits​ for residential energy storage systems installed in 2024. Eligible applicants may continue and are encouraged to apply. The residential application waitlist will remain open until June 30, 2024. Starting July 1, 2024, unallocated tax credits initially reserved for MESITC commercial applications will become available to waitlisted residential applications. Waitlisted eligible residential applications will receive tax credit certificates in the order of which they are received. MEA encourages eligible applicants to complete and submit their residential applications as soon as possible for best chance at receiving a tax credit.

If you have already applied for the MESITC Program, and have yet to receive an email on the status of your application, MEA will review it in the order that it was received, and if found eligible, it will be placed on the residential waitlist. Current applicants that are waitlisted in this manner will be notified by MEA.


The information in the table below is updated every Friday afternoon, or next business day if a State Holiday is on a Friday.

NOTE: All unclaimed funds in all categories after June 30, 2024 will be made available to all applicants without restriction based on type (residential or commercial) on July 1, 2024.
