March for A Clean Energy Revolution

On Sunday, July 24, on the eve of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, thousands of people will march through the streets to call for the end of fracking and other dirty fossil fuels and a quick and just transition to a future with clean, renewable energy. 
Join us to march alongside front line communities, local groups, students, people of faith, workers and others who are fighting fossil fuels in their backyards and fighting to build a just energy future.

Thanks to the new Community Solar law in Maryland, everybody can go solar! Community Solar allows you to sign up for solar power for your home, business or organization without installing any equipment on your roof.
Learn how you and your neighbors can join together to build a local clean energy solar project that will let you save money and help the environment.

Speak up NOW

The Maryland Department of  Environment (MDE) has developed issue papers about topics that generated extensive interest when MDE, under the O'Malley administration, proposed regulations in January 2015. The issue papers include an overview of the requirements included in the 2015 proposal and MDE's tentative suggestions for revising those requirements. When MDE held three public meetings in June (MDE's PowerPoint presentation) to hear comments on the papers, it was met with an outcry.
