BGE Rivers

Baltimore Gas & Electric

Specifications

This is a 2.8 MW community solar project located in the Baltimore Gas & Electric utility territory. It is located near Sykesville and affectionately received the name Rivers as a tribute to the many Maryland rivers and tributaries that have helped shape the land and communities we see today.

Rivers was constructed on land that previously served as a farm so no trees were cut down in the process. The development process actually did quite the opposite, planting 32 shade trees, 193 evergreen trees, and 59 shrubs so the site can double as a native pollinator habitat while powering hundreds of local residences with renewable energy. When you subscribe to get your share of energy from the community solar farm each month, you save 10% on clean energy compared to standard BGE rates, no matter how much they fluctuate. Less pollution in our air and more money in your pocket… What’s not to like?
