The Maryland Solar Energy Industries Association (MSEIA) is excited to announce a new online application for certification of solar renewable energy facilities! This application will streamline the process for solar developers and help move Maryland one step closer to our goal of 10,000 MW of solar by 2040.

Here’s what you need to know about the new application:

The application is available online at:

The application is for new solar facilities only – it cannot be used for existing facilities.

The application must be submitted electronically, and you will need to create an account in order to access it.

Once you have created an account, you will be able to save your progress and come back to the application at any time.

The application must be completed in one sitting – you will not be able to save your progress and come back to it later.

You will need the following information in order to complete the application:

The name, address, and contact information for the solar developer

The name and address of the project site

A description of the project

The project’s latitude and longitude

The project’s total capacity (in MW)

The project’s expected completion date

After you have submitted the application, MSEIA staff will review it and contact you if we have any questions. Once the application has been approved, you will be able to schedule an inspection of the project site.

We are excited to launch this new application and we hope that it will make the solar certification process more efficient for everyone involved. If you have any questions about the application or the solar certification process, please contact MSEIA staff at

Q: How do renewable energy credits work?

A: Renewable energy credits (RECs) are a type of environmental commodity that represents the environmental benefits of generating one megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity from a renewable source. RECs can be sold separately from the electricity commodity, and are often used by utilities and other entities to meet renewable energy goals.
