Maryland/USA: Solar Water Heaters eligible for Solar Renewable Energy Credits

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 27, 2011

 Maryland” Successful at second try: At the beginning of April, the government of the East Coast state of Maryland approved a bill which makes solar water heating eligible for Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) under the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS). So far, only solar electricity kilowatt-hours were accepted in fulfilling the solar quota of 2 % by 2022. In 2010, a similar bill fell short of success in the House of Delegates. Its passing half a year later came about due to the fervent lobbying efforts by members of the solar thermal sector, such as Rick Peters, President of Maryland-based installation company Solar Energy Services, and Mike Healy, Partner of installation company Skyline Innovations from Washington DC.
