FY24 Solar Technical Assistance Program


Program Description: The program provides technical assistance, at MEA’s cost, to state or local government entities for solar site surveys, and to conduct preliminary development of solar projects.  For projects accepted under this program, the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) will coordinate with the Maryland Environmental Service (MES) for the provision of Technical Assistance by MES, or by technical service providers with the appropriate technical expertise that are selected by MES and MEA.  

Program Purpose:  This program provides technical assistance for state or local government entities who are interested in including on-site solar generation but do not have the technical expertise to evaluate potential issues for siting them.  This information is needed to allow government entities to make decisions concerning the location, use (to include resiliency options), and budgeting of solar energy projects. 

Type of Program: This program provides technical assistance, not funding.  It is a Non-competitive program (first-come, first-served basis).  

Program Application Deadline: Friday, March 15, 2024, at 5:00 p.m.

Anticipated Program Budget: MEA anticipates providing up to $400,000 of technical assistance through an agreement with the Maryland Environmental Service and its Technical Assistance providers.  For more information, please see the Funding Opportunity Announcement below.
