About the Program

Maryland recently approved the Maryland Community Solar Pilot Program. Through this program, Maryland residents can sign up to support a new, local, solar project. Energy from the project flows to the electric grid, replacing fossil fuels and directly lowering emissions. When you sign up to support a project, you receive clean energy credits that lower your electric bill.
