GLEN BURNIE, Md. — On Tuesday, Governor Hogan unveiled the clean and renewable energy standard, or the CARES Legislation.

He made the announcement at the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, which has a state-of-the-art combined heat and power system that was installed in 2017.

"They have moved forward on this to combine heat and power system that is saving them money and it's great for the environment and long term it's lowering their cost and lowering their carbon emissions," said Hogan

That system is part of the CARES plan, which also includes building nuclear energy facilities supporting hydropower and finding ways to capture use and/or store carbon emissions.

The governor plans to submit the plan on the first day of the upcoming legislative session which is January 8.
