What is community solar?
Community solar is a new program in Maryland created by the state to enable everyone to get access to solar energy, no matter where you live. It allows Marylanders to subscribe to large solar projects in their area and enjoy the benefits of virtual net metering, which is like having solar on your roof without having to install any panels or make any upfront payments. The Public Service Commission regulates the program, including overseeing consumer protection rules and licensing subscriber organizations, such as Neighborhood Sun.
How does Community Solar work for me?
Community solar enables anyone who pays an electricity bill to tap into a local, solar farm installed offsite. Together with hundreds of other residents, you can subscribe to a share of a large solar project and have the same benefits like you had rooftop solar. Your solar energy will be delivered to you through your normal electric utility provider, so there’s no installation on your property or investment/upfront fees to be part of this.

YOU are a key part of this community solar project
THE ROCKDALE SOLAR PROJECT is nestled in the quaint town of Williamsport, Maryland right where the Potomac River and Conococheague Creek meet. Here, the historic Chesapeake and Ohio Canal was built in 1835 and brought a “boom” of prosperity to the town. Today, the canal is part of the C&O National Historic Park where visitors and locals can bike and walk along the beautiful waterways. The project site itself is family-owned, working farmland. While the land has been used to grow hay and crops in the past, the family is happy to see it given new life as clean energy site.
