Description: 

The plan proposes four actions to achieve the goals of "keeping consumers' bills down, their lights on, and meet climate and environmental objectives": 1. create a Strategic Energy Investment Fund, using revenues generated by the sale of carbon allowances under the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), to invest in energy efficiency, renewable energy and Maryland’s clean energy industry; 2. require utilities to implement cost-effective energy efficiency programs; 3. increase generation by strengthening the state’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS); and, 4. plan for the future by improving Maryland’s energy plans and stimulating its emerging clean energy industry.
