Energy and Air Quality Advisory Committee

The Energy and Air Quality Advisory Committee (EAQAC) is charged with advising the Montgomery County Executive and Council on issues related to energy and air quality. EAQAC was established by Montgomery County Code Chapter 18A-5.  The Committee is comprised of 15 County residents appointed by the County Executive and approved by the County Council.

The Committee has the following duties:

  • Advise the County Executive and the County Council on energy and air quality issues

  • Develop recommendations to promote and implement immediate and long-range energy and air quality consciousness in all segments of the community

  • Comment on or assist in developing programs to meet energy standards and to promote healthy indoor and outdoor air quality

  • Identify areas and methods to encourage voluntary participation in energy conservation efforts and air quality improvements

  • Educate the public and private sectors about the efficient use of energy and its direct benefits for improved air quality

  • Carry out duties assigned from time to time by the County Executive and the County Council.


EAQAC generally meets on the first Wednesday of every month, from 7-9 p.m., at the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection offices (255 Rockville Pike, Suite 120, Rockville, MD 20850).

EAQAC meetings are open to the public.  Meetings may be postponed due to holidays, weather, or other factors, so please contact DEP to determine if the Committee is meeting at the designated time and place.
