MEA EmPOWER Maryland CHP Grant Program

In support of Maryland’s ongoing efforts to enable sustainable energy development, the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) has announced a new program designed to further encourage Combined Heat and Power (CHP) growth. Promoted under the name “MEA EmPOWER Maryland CHP Grant Program” or “MEA EmPowerMdCHP”, the new program will target Healthcare and Publicly Owned Wastewater Treatment facilities throughout Maryland. These two industries have been selected because of the inherent requirement for enhanced electricity resiliency in their facilities. In this manner, the program will help ensure the health, safety, and well-being of Maryland’s citizenry. Additionally, the efficiency gains realized by commissioning CHP systems will also help to make progress towards Maryland’s clean energy goals including the generation of renewable energy (biogas/biomass), reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and reducing waste streams.

Important Notice Regarding the Phase Out of Premium Efficiency Motor Incentives

The Delmarva Power C&I Energy Savings Programs will discontinue offering program incentives for premium efficiency electric motors as of March 1, 2011. The Motor incentives are being phased out due to higher national efficiency standards for electric motors manufactured after December 19, 2010, as required by the *2007 Federal Energy Independence and Security Act (E.I.S.A.). It is expected that all Maryland utilities will take similar action.

To ensure that any currently planned projects or pre-approved projects can be completed prior to the motor incentives end date, you must:
  • Submit your Motor Application no later than February 28, 2011 to be eligible for pre-approval.
  • Complete all pre-approved projects, including those approved prior to this notification, and submit all required documentation to the program office by May 31, 2011.
Incentive checks will be mailed within four weeks of receipt of all completed project documentation by the program office.

*For more information regarding the 2007 Federal Energy Independence and Security Act go to: http://www1.eere.energy.gov/buildings/appliance_standards or http://www1.eere.energy.gov/buildings/appliance_standards/commercial/pdfs/electricmotors_eisa_compliance_faqs.pdf
