Renewable Energy

Maryland’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) was established in 2004 to capture the economic, environmental, fuel diversity, and security benefits of renewable energy; establish a market for renewable energy in Maryland; and lower the cost of obtaining electricity generated from renewable sources. Maryland’s RPS Program does this by gradually increasing the amount of renewable energy electricity suppliers must procure from renewable sources by 2030 to 50 percent as most recently updated by the Clean Energy Jobs Act of 2019.  As the RPS increases, fewer and fewer pollutants enter our air and water,  and the state’s array of renewable energy resources grows.
