New campaign seeks to require half of Maryland energy to come from renewable sources

A coalition of environmentalists, clergy and solar and wind energy companies launched a campaign Wednesday calling for half of Marylands electricity to come from renewable sources.That would double a policy adopted last year requiring that renewable energy account for 25 percent of the state’s electricity portfolio by 2020. The new campaign is setting a target of 2030.“We cannot wait another moment to begin bringing about the clean-energy future we need,” said Brooke Harper, Maryland and District of Columbia policy director for the Chesapeake Climate Action Network.
