Maryland Home Energy Loan Program (INACTIVE)

As of August 1, 2017, the MHELP program is no longer being offered by MCEC.  See for more details​

The Maryland Energy Administration and the Maryland Clean Energy Center (MCEC) are partnering to provide loans of up to $20,000 at a 9.99% interest rate to Maryland property owners interested in improving the energy-efficiency of their homes. The Maryland Home Energy Loan Program (MHELP) is designed to complement existing utility rebates to help homeowners overcome the up-front cost barriers associated with whole-house energy efficiency upgrades.

MHELP will empower Marylanders to take control of their energy future and stimulate the growth of green collar jobs.
