Solar Energy Grant

Sustainable Energy will stop accepting ALL Clean Energy Program grant applications beginning June 24, 2022 and issue final fiscal year 2022 pre-qualifications on June 30, 2022. This moratorium is due to the mandatory fiscal year close out process and relocation of Sustainable Energy to a new agency in fiscal year 2023. We expect to recommence accepting and prequalifying applications by July 19, 2022 and will keep you up-to-date on changes.

This grant award, coupled with state energy incentives, provides assistance to residents to access the benefits of solar photovoltaic (PV) and/or solar water heater upon the successful implementation of energy-efficiency (electricity and natural gas) measures. It also builds on Maryland and Prince George’s County’s energy-efficiency and carbon reduction goals and will help in making our County more energy resilient, using a holistic approach to break energy and cost barriers.
