With the end of the 2023 legislative session fast approaching, the Maryland General Assembly should move quickly to finalize timely legislation to update and improve EmPOWER Maryland, the state’s energy efficiency program. EmPOWER, launched in 2008, has saved ratepayers more than $4 billion on energy bills and reduced Maryland’s greenhouse gas emissions by the equivalent of 9.6 million metric tons of carbon dioxide. That’s equal to taking 2 million cars off the road for a year.
Lawmakers should move quickly to pass changes that strengthen EmPOWER energy efficiency program
