Description: The Maryland Smart Energy Communities (MSEC)
program is designed to support local governments as they voluntarily adopt
energy policies (and commit to them for the long term) leading to sustained
reduction in energy usage, cost savings, and additional opportunities for
renewable energy development.
Program Purpose: The
MSEC program serves several purposes: it assists municipal and county
governments throughout Maryland as they participate in the State’s transition
to affordable, clean and reliable energy; it supports those governments with
grants for clean energy projects; it increases in-state renewable energy
generation (that supports the State’s renewable portfolio standard goal and its
greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal); and, it supports the State’s goal for
increasing the number of electric vehicles operating in state.
of Program: The
MSEC program is a competitive grant program.
Application Deadline: 5 p.m. EST on
November 12, 2021
Anticipated Program Budget: MEA anticipates that up to
$1,030,000 total will be available as follows: up to $585,000 for energy
efficiency projects, up to $347,500 for Tier 1 renewable energy projects, and
up to $97,500 for transportation petroleum-reduction projects.
