Clean Energy Production Tax Credit


The Clean Energy Incentive Tax Credit, enacted in 2006, offers Marylanders a state income tax credit for electricity generated by qualified resources of 0.85 cents per kilo-watt hour, and 0.50 cents per kilo-watt hour for electricity generated from co-firing a qualified resource with coal. These credits can be claimed over a period of five years. Annual tax credits cannot exceed one fifth of the initial credit certificate issued by the Maryland Energy Administration. This credit is available to individuals and corporations that build and generate electricity from qualified resources operational on or after January 1, 2006, but before January 1, 2016.
