Shepherd’s Mill

Potomac Edison


The Shepherd’s Mill solar farm aptly received its name by being located right off Shepherd’s Mill Road in Union Bridge, Maryland.  Nestled just outside downtown Union Bridge and close to Little Pipe Creek, the solar farm is located in Carroll County and sits right on the northeast border of Frederick County. 

The solar farm will generate an average of 2.9 Megawatts of electricity per year and will supply roughly 700 homes with clean energy over their 25-year lifespan.  In addition, a portion of the project is solely dedicated to residents who qualify for our S.H.A.R.E Program: Apartment renters and homeowners who historically contribute the least amount of pollution. The farm’s solar shares will be subscribed by ratepayers who live in the Potomac Edison/First Energy electric utility territory.
