This report is part of a larger project, Renewable Maryland, that aims to create a roadmap for an emissions-free, resilient, just, and economical energy system.
Maryland can achieve a prosperous, renewable, and healthy energy future at lower cost than pursuing business-as-usual with fossil fuels. It has plentiful renewable energy resources to do so. It is a recipe for healthy prosperity that will save Marylanders between $1.3 billion and $7.3 billion a year (2011 dollars) in energy costs in 2050, even after making provisions for (i) assistance for low income households to pay no more than 6 percent of income on energy bills, (ii) proactive investments in communities now dependent on fossil-fuel-related jobs, and (iii) new job creation in underserved areas.
