Why Community Solar?
Revolutionizing a Green Economy in Maryland
Community solar arrangements connect people who want to use solar energy, but can’t install it where they live, to a local solar installation.
Community solar refers to local solar facilities shared by multiple community subscribers who receive credit on their electricity bills for their share of the power produced. This model for solar is being rapidly adopted nationwide.

7-year Pilot Program
Maryland is currently under a Community Solar Pilot Program through 2024, which is providing access to solar for all Marylanders without requiring property ownership.
The program has set aside capacity for each area of the state with a statewide cap at about 418 MW. 125 MW is set aside for projects focused on low and moderate income customers.
