EmPOWER Maryland Act

In 2008, Maryland PIRG helped pass the EmPOWER Maryland Act, which sets a statewide goal of reducing per capita electricity use 15% by 2015.

We also helped pass legislation to use fees paid by polluters to help Maryland residents lower their energy bills through energy efficiency.

On Dec. 31, 2008 the Maryland Public Service Commission approved a suite of utility programs designed to make Maryland homes and businesses more energy efficient. For a full description of the approved programs, check out your utility's website.
