Spur community investment in clean energy infrastructure

Several states have created their own public-private “green banks” to finance their transition to clean energy. However, most still need funding to seed or expand them. O’Malley will support these state-led investments by using his executive authority to unlock federal “green dollars” that currently reside in federal loan guarantee programs. Under an O’Malley Administration, any state or local government that creates a fund to meet urban infrastructure and clean energy needs could receive millions of dollars in federal funding to capitalize it.
