Grants to Maryland businesses, nonprofits, farms, private schools, and private or community IHEs to reduce utility costs and improve the energy efficiency of existing or planned facilities. Funding is intended for projects in agriculture, business, or manufacturing for activities that will result in at least 18% reduced energy consumption in the facility.
The FY21 program will be divided into three separate application periods to best support energy efficiency projects for agriculture, manufacturing, and businesses that may be in varying planning stages or at various stages of readiness due to COVID-19.
Examples of possible energy efficiency measures include but are not limited to the following:
GrantWatch ID#: 164062
- $550,000 is available for applications received in application period 1 from July 10 – September 10, 2020.
- $550,000 is available for applications received in application period 2 from September 11 –November 11, 2020.
- $550,000 is available for applications received in application period 3 from November 12 –January 12, 2021.
Eligible projects must cost at least $20,000 before the deduction of leveraged funds (rebates, incentives, etc.). Based upon the type of project, where “project” refers to the eligible energy efficiency measures for which an application has been submitted to the FY21 CI&A Program and selected for an award, incentive amounts will be calculated as follows:
Existing Facilities: Up to 50% of the Net Project Cost (defined as Total Cost minus all other incentives, rebates, and leveraged funds), or $200,000, whichever is lower. If a project is making improvements at multiple facilities, the total award for all facilities under the CI&A program cannot exceed $200,000.
To-be-constructed Facilities: Up to 50% of the Net Project Incremental Cost (defined as Total Cost minus all other incentives, rebates, and leveraged funds AND the cost of energy code-minimum technology, equipment, or building materials/envelope measures), or $200,000, whichever is lower. If a project consists of multiple facilities, the total award for all facilities under the CI&A program cannot exceed $200,000.
The project must be completed within eighteen (18) months of the execution of a Grant Agreement with MEA.
