OneEnergy’s community solar projects in Anne Arundel County are participating in Maryland's newly opened community solar program.

 

Planned on privately-owned property in Anne Arundel County, these projects have the full support of the landowners and ARE designed to lower the cost of your monthly electric bill—while making clean energy accessible to everyone!

CleanChoice Energy is engaging customers interested in using clean energy from the project to lower their electric bills, and OneEnergy Renewables—a national leader in solar development—will design and oversee the project.

 
 Bee Friendly Solar is comprised of three solar energy projects planned on private property in Lothian and Tracy's Landing with full support of each of the landowners. BGE customers will be eligible to receive savings on the clean energy produced from the projects. The site will be planted with pollinator-friendly native plants and flowers. Butterflies and bees are responsible for every third bite of food we eat. Suitable habitat is critical to healthy pollinator populations and successful crops, and the wildflower meadows are beautiful to the eye.

Everyone has a home. Our home just happens to be a farm in Cambridge, Maryland. This field hasn’t been the most productive on the farm so when this opportunity came along, it seemed a good answer for that piece of ground. Basically, we’re harvesting the sun. It’s still a field. Instead of corn and soybeans, we get kilowatts. It’s going to give us a steady income and reliable source of income that we can depend upon year after year that will help us continue to operate as a farm.

 Maryland recently launched the Community Solar Pilot Program. This program allows ALL residents in Anne Arundel County access to solar energy. Solar generates electricity without producing harmful pollutants. These three projects will avoid adding roughly 278,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas to the atmosphere—the equivalent of taking nearly 60,000 cars off the road over the life of the projects.

As lifelong farmers, my family has made a living growing crops. Now, we’re using a portion of our property to harvest a new crop: the sun. Baker Point Solar has provided us the opportunity to generate affordable energy for people that need it, and more property tax dollars for the schools that our grandkids attend. We could not be more excited to be a part of this solar project.
