The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) is accepting grant applications until Friday, Sept. 7, for its FY19 Parking Lot Solar PV Canopy with EV Charger Grant Program.
The Solar Canopy Grant Program combines Maryland’s renewable portfolio standard goal for solar with the state’s ongoing support of electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure, according to MEA. The program aims to capture the state’s unrealized potential of parking lot spaces by installing solar while still allowing parking to be offered. It is also designed to result in increased clean electricity generation sited close to local electrical loads and an increased opportunity for EVs to charge.
Selected grantees meeting program requirements and restrictions will receive an award of up to $400/kW of installed solar PV capacity with a cap of $200,000 per project. More information can be found here.
