Van Hollen Statement on New Obama Administration Effort to Increase Access to Clean Energy for Maryland Homeowners
Washington, DC – Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen released the following statement on the Obama Administration’s new guidelines for Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing on homes with mortgages issued by the Federal Housing Administration and the Department of Veterans Affairs:
“I applaud the Administration for working to accelerate the adoption of clean energy systems and energy efficiency projects through the PACE programs, and I was proud to support this effort. These new guidelines include strong consumer protections and will give more Maryland families and veterans the ability to save on their energy bills. The Administration has also launched an important job training initiative in Baltimore to ensure that Maryland has the skilled workforce we need to perform solar installations. Our state must continue to work to take full advantage of the economic opportunities in the clean energy industry.”
