ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A Maryland county’s first community solar project is scheduled to launch online this summer.
The Capital Gazette reports Anne Arundel County residents will be able to get solar energy from a solar farm at Tracy’s Landing.
The state’s community solar pilot program was launched in 2017.
It allows electric customers access to solar energy through a subscription.
The Checkerspot Community Solar Farm comes as Maryland is trying to increase its solar output.
A state law enacted in 2019 mandates 50% of the state’s energy must come from renewable sources. Three other county solar projects are being considered.
