Maryland Solar Gardens Bill Introduced

     A new solar gardens bill has been introduced in the State of Maryland!  Solar Gardens Institute core team member David Brosch has led the effort, working closely with Vote Solar.  The bill is the first statewide effort to use the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) community renewables model program rules.

     The bill has been introduced in both the House of Delegates and Senate under different bill numbers and with identical text.  HB864 is sponsored by Dana Stein, and SB595 is sponsored by Paul Pinsky.  No hearing has yet been scheduled in either chamber.  The big hurdle in Maryland, as I understand it, is to get the bill through committee.
