Published: 7/27/2023

ANNAPOLIS, MD — Governor Wes Moore today announced that ClearlyEnergy, Inc., a company located in Severna Park, is receiving a $2.9 million award as part of President Joseph R. Biden’s Investing in America agenda. Funded by the president’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the award is part of an effort that will support 27 projects across 26 states and the District of Columbia to ensure buildings meet the latest standards for energy efficiency and lowering energy bills for American families and businesses.

“Local companies like ClearlyEnergy, Inc. have a critical role to play in helping meet Maryland’s ambitious environmental goals,” said Gov. Moore. “This support from the Biden-Harris Administration is a critical step forward in helping make our communities cleaner, greener, and more sustainable.” 

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, awardees will provide technical assistance for updating state and local building codes, which are projected to save Americans $138 billion on their utility bills and reduce 900 million metric tons of CO2 emissions by 2040. Modernizing energy codes is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve energy efficiency in homes and businesses and make communities more resilient to extreme weather events, which are key to addressing the climate crisis and achieving the Biden-Harris Administration’s ambitious clean energy goals. 

ClearlyEnergy works with community real estate partners to simplify residential and commercial energy in small, rural, and Justice40 communities. Their platform empowers Marylanders by providing them with the data necessary to make informed energy choices. ClearlyEnergy will assist the state’s homeowners and companies in managing various disclosure programs, as well as commercial building energy performance standards. 

The U.S. Department of Energy is allocating $90 million for improvements to building standards in states across the nation that are projected to save Americans $138 billion in utility bills and reduce 900 million metric tons of CO2 emissions by 2040. Cost-effective savings and emissions reductions will help move the country closer to achieving our nation’s clean energy goals.
