Solar energy is getting a lot of attention in Maryland right now, as state officials make efforts to expand the clean energy source’s reach to its residents and businesses.
This past spring, Governor Larry Hogan passed a law making it possible to launch a community solar project to encourage the state’s expansion of solar energy capacity.
Efforts have already gotten underway, with the Public Service Commission releasing draft regulations for the initiative in November, well ahead of the proposed May 2016 deadline.
The regulations call for all electric utility companies in Maryland to develop their own community solar programs.
Set to last for three years, the pilot will be monitored by the Public Service Commission, which will study the results to see if it’s viable in the long term.
