Welcome to our inaugural Maryland Climate-Friendly Electricity Guide. Marylanders are lucky, as we have a choice about what type of electricity powers our homes – coal-fired or renewable. It’s mind-boggling to compare the options, so we’ve done the work for you.

The Maryland Climate-Friendly Electricity Guide will be published monthly. Designed for residential customers, the how-to compares rates and offers tips on how to switch your home’s electricity supplier to 100 percent renewable energy.

Most people want to do the right thing for the environment, but two things consistently get in the way of good intentions: our super-busy lives and the perception that being green is expensive and hard.

The good news is there’s nothing wrong with being a lazy environmentalist, if you’re good at it.  As luck would have it, Maryland offers two things most states don’t: deregulated utilities and single-stream recycling*. Give this slacker greenie thing a try, it makes a big difference.
