Grants to Maryland commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities, as well as infrastructure facilities, to assist in the implementation of combined heat and power technologies. Funding is intended to encourage facilities to switch to more cost-effective, energy-efficient biofuel options, such as natural gas, biomass, biogas, and other fossil fuels.
The FY20 MEA CHP grant program will provide grants to encourage the implementation of CHP technologies in eligible commercial, industrial, institutional, agricultural, educational, and critical infrastructure facilities (including healthcare, wastewater treatment, and essential state and local government facilities), and to encourage the implementation of CHP technologies that leverage biogas/biomass as a fuel source in commercial, industrial, institutional, and critical infrastructure facilities.
Reciprocating engines, turbines, micro turbines, natural gas chillers, fuel cells, and back-pressure steam turbines are eligible CHP technologies, as long as the waste heat is being captured for on-site use. Fuel sources can include natural gas, biomass, biogas, and other fossil fuels that meet State and Federal regulations.
The following types of new CHP projects are eligible:
To ensure geographic diversity, MEA will initially reserve funding for at least one project in each AOI within the rural areas of Maryland. If no eligible CHP applications are submitted from the rural areas of the State within an AOI, MEA will then fund the next eligible project(s) within that AOI.
GrantWatch ID#: 182476
Individual grants range in size from up to $425/kW to up to $575/kW, based on the size of the CHP system, with a maximum per project cap of $500,000, subject to funding availability.
