The program will be managed by the Maryland Energy Administration and funded with a portion of the proceeds from the state’s carbon-emission credit auctions.

Over the next year, the state expects to collect more than $94 million from the auctions to help fund energy efficiency, low-income energy assistance, rate relief for local energy consumers, and renewable energy efforts.

The state is one of the 31 states tracking GHG emissions by industry sector.
