House Bill 11 is withdrawn!

Updated: May 23, 2022



Woody Biomass is the preferable choice for renewal thermal energy because it is abundant, inexpensive, price stable, clean, sustainable, a locally purchased energy source that displaces high-cost and high-emission fossil fuels.

If passed HB11 would have eliminated wood from the RPS. To learn more about why wood (a renewable resource) deserves a place in Maryland's RPS use the link below to read MFA's coalition letter.

There is still plenty of work to be done. MFA and our partners will continue to push for wood to be a stand-alone fuel in the RPS. We know that the science and numbers are on our side to make combined heat and power projects a reality in Maryland!
