Seeking your input:  Renewable energy projects and their impact on Maryland military installations.

Renewable energy and military readiness are high priorities for sustaining the State of Maryland’s environmental and economic health. The importance of these sectors is evidenced by Maryland’s aggressive renewable energy goal of 100% clean electricity by 2040 and the military industry’s support of 370,000 jobs in Maryland and contribution of $57.5 Billion to the state’s economy (most recent data - FY2016). 

The Maryland Renewable Energy Compatible Siting Project, led by the Maryland Department of Commerce, helps provide tools and recommendations to promote new renewable energy development, balanced with protecting military capability throughout the state.

The project team issued a questionnaire to gauge support for initiatives that could be implemented to enhance compatible siting of renewable energy projects using different approaches, including potential legislative initiatives, policies, and processes. Please respond to this brief questionnaire by Friday, August 20.
Take the Questionnaire 
Responses to the questionnaire are informational and will be used to identify best practices that may be considered for further exploration. Please feel free to share the questionnaire with others in your network.
