CleanChoice Energy is now accepting subscriptions for a Dorchester County, Md., community solar project, Glassywing Solar. The completed community solar project will allow several hundred Delmarva Power customers to support local jobs, environmental protection, and strengthen community solar while saving up to 10 percent on their utility bills. Standard Solar funded, will own, and maintain the project. OneEnergy Renewables, through its regional office in Washington, D.C., initiated, developed, and permitted the Glassywing Solar project.
“Delmarva customers can now save up to 10 percent on their utility bills while supporting local solar jobs, supporting pollinator habitat, and reducing harmful pollution,” said Tom Matzzie, CEO of CleanChoice Energy. “Our goal is to make supporting renewable energy as easy as possible. With community solar, almost everyone with a utility bill can access the benefits of solar.”
“Community solar is one of the most effective ways to expand the role of solar energy into more people’s lives, so we are pleased to have funded and constructed the Glassywing Solar project and its pollinator friendly mission,” said Eric Partyka, Director of Business Development-National Accounts, Standard Solar. “As the project’s proud owners, we look forward to serving its customers for decades to come.”
Community solar shares solar energy benefits when consumers are unable to install solar panels on their property. Subscribers benefit from the electricity generated at the community solar project, which costs less than the price they would ordinarily pay. The community benefits from local jobs, the expanded tax base, and the growth of renewable energy. Glassywing Solar will also include landscaping designed to provide food and habitat to local pollinators.
