County Grants Exception for Maryland Solar Farm

Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative’s (SMECO’s) proposed 5.5 MW solar farm located in Charles County, Maryland, will move forward thanks to an exception granted by the Charles County Board of Appeals. The planned solar farm will help SMECO meet its Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) requirements as imposed by the Maryland Public Service Commission. The estimated cost of the solar farm is approximately $20 million, and SMECO hopes to have the county’s first solar farm online no later than the first quarter of 2013.  Click here for more.
