Get trash incineration out of Maryland’s renewable energy program. In 2022 alone, Maryland wasted $24.7 million to help fund trash incineration instead of putting that money towards real renewable energy projects. Call on your legislators to pass the Reclaim Renewable Energy Act (HB166/SB146) to remove trash incineration from Maryland’s renewable portfolio.
