Electrify Frederick County:
For Clean, Green All-Electric Buildings

Supporting County-wide legislation for all-new electric buildings

Get dangerous gas out of our buildings

Help meet MD's statewide goal of 60% reduction in emissions by 2031

The movement to #ElectrifyEverything is growing in Maryland! Montgomery and Howard Counties recently passed legislation to electrify new buildings and homes. In a state – Maryland – committed to a carbon-free electrical grid in coming years, we need to act now to make sure new buildings are equipped with electric hot water systems and heat pumps for space heating and cooling, creating a zero-greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions future.

Now it’s time for Frederick County to follow suit!
