BALTIMORE, April 10, 2019 (Local News) -Not all environmentalists are cheering the MarylandGeneral Assembly's approval Monday of incentivesthat double down on utility customers’ investment in renewable energy.
They all agree reaching a goal of 50% green energy by 2030 would help reduce greenhouse gases and combat climate change. But some say a bill approved in the final hour of the legislature’s annual session will only magnify a wrinkle in state policy that rewards carbon-emitting trash incinerators and paper mills with millions of dollars in green energy subsidies that are funded through energy bills.
“Thank you for your efforts to move Maryland towards a clean energy economy,” Caroline Eader wrote Tuesday in an e-mail to state lawmakers.
