About the Division of Energy & Environment

At the Division of Energy and Environment (DEE), we're not just about protecting the environment—we're about forging a path towards a brighter, greener future for Frederick County, Maryland.

Here at DEE, we're the driving force behind practical solutions that not only conserve energy but also champion sustainability in every aspect of our lives. From managing the transformative Green Homes Challenge to spearheading innovative programs like the Green Homes Program and Power Saver Retrofits, we're committed to making a tangible difference in our community.

But our mission goes beyond just initiatives; we understand that the effects of climate change don't affect everyone equally. That's why we're dedicated to ensuring that our programs and services are inclusive and accessible to all, regardless of where they live or their background.

Because sustainability isn't a luxury—it's a necessity that every single one of us deserves. Through collective action and small, intentional steps, we have the power to create a resilient, thriving, and healthy "green" community that benefits us all.

Join the Green Homes Challenge and embark on this inspiring journey towards a brighter tomorrow, where together, we can make our world a better place—one green initiative at a time.
