MD Ranks #2 Solar Friendly State


2013  Solar Rankings (scores out of 5)

Solar Power Rocks released their 2013 State Solar Power Rankings. In their report, Maryland comes in second place, just after Massachusetts. That’ right, Maryland is almost the most solar friendly state, according to Solar Power Rocks.

They based their rankings on the state’s policies and incentives for solar. Maryland, with an average 8 year payback time for a 5kW system, got an A for the Residential Solar Grade.

Their colorful data sheet shows the criteria and the state’s grades for each criteria. Maryland gets above a B in all categories except for the state tax credits.
