County of Kent, Maryland Renewable Energy Task Force

Not Applicable
County Of Kent   
| Suburban | Rural
In response to state and federal initiatives to reduce energy consumption and increase energy production from renewables, Kent County created its Renewable Energy Task Force to study and evaluate the benefits of renewable energy generation at multiple scales, make recommendations about appropriate renewable energy technologies, and propose policy changes and ordinance amendments. In 2011, the Task Force successfully proposed amendments to the County Code, adding both permitted use and special exception provisions for small-scale solar energy systems. In 2015, the Task Force was charged with revisiting its 2010 white paper in order to emphasize utility-scale systems and to ensure that any ordinance provisions reflect current industry advancements.
