BALTIMORE (AP) - Clean energy supporters in Maryland are announcing a new campaign to require that 50 percent of the state's electricity come from renewable sources by 2030.

They have scheduled a news conference Wednesday in Baltimore to discuss a legislative proposal to expand Maryland's Renewable Portfolio Standard. That requires utilities to buy a certain percentage of renewable energy each year from the current target of 20 percent by 2020.
