From the Baltimore Sun:
A new solar power system will help power the Maryland Environmental Services headquarters in Millersville, the governors office said today in announcing an agreement between MES and a Constellation subsidiary.
The agreement involving Constellation Energys Projects & Services Group will last 15 years, and the electricity produced by the solar panels will power about half of MES headquarters annual electricity, the governors office said.
The solar installation, which will be on the rooftop of the MES building, will also serve as an educational facility.
“Maryland will continue to invest in renewable energy resources, including the use of Marylands share of the $38 million generated in the nations first mandatory cap-and-trade auction to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” Gov. Martin O’Malley said in a news release.
