    Half of Marylandís electricity to come from renewable sources by 2030

    Half of Marylandís electricity to come from renewable sources by 2030

    Without massive subsidies I would think that many homeowners in Maryland will not be able to afford the upfront costs. Or maybe the state will offer low or no interest loans.

    Maryland must get 50 percent of its electricity from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar by 2030 under a bill that will become law without Gov. Larry Hoganís signature.

    Only the District and nine states, including California, New Jersey and Hawaii, have renewable standards at 50 percent or higher, according to the Chesapeake Climate Action Network. The Maryland bill allows subsidies for producers of green energy, including some that generate pollutants, like trash incinerators and paper mills.


    ďThis is the strongest bill ever passed in Maryland to fight global warming and now stands as a national example,Ē said Mike Tidwell, director of the network.


    Hogan (R) announced Wednesday that he would allow the legislation to move forward ďdespite serious concernsĒ over the cost of the bill and whether it will preserve jobs in the state and have the impact legislators are expecting.


    While rejecting the General Assemblyís effort, Hogan said he remains committed to addressing climate change. He pledged to push legislation next year for 100 percent clean energy by 2040.

    Partly doable by simply reducing consumption, as with LED lighting.
    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, that's the proof of your dishonesty and bad faith I've been looking for.

    I have a lot of LED lighting now. I like them, especially as recessed lighting.
