Mountain Maryland Energy Advisory Committee Recommends Solar, Biomass, and Energy Efficiency Projects

The Mountain  Maryland Energy Advisory Committee (MMEAC) today presented its final recommendations to the Garrett County Board of Commissioners. These recommendations focused on solar power, biomass energy, and home energy efficiency.

Created in  November 2013, the MMEAC has advised the Garrett and Allegany County Commissioners on local and state policy, regulation, programs, and legislation. The Committee guided energy planning in an attempt to maximize positive effects and minimize potentially negative consequences of energy production. Representing a diversity of perspectives, the 12 committee members are private citizens, business owners, and leaders in economic development, health, education, and recreation.

“Working with the Committee has been both enlightening and inspiring,” said Cheryl DeBerry, Natural Resources Business Specialist for Garrett County Economic Development. “Committee members and members of the public have provided us with some great ideas that will help Garrett County government as well as local businesses and residents learn about  energy conservation and efficiency as well as  sustainable energy development.”
