Help With Solar For Your Home

January 2019

You can get help with adding solar power to your home from some local non-profit groups. Two of them have information sessions coming up in February 2018.

These are great because many of your questions will be answered all in a no-pressure setting. If you cannot make it to the information sessions, you can still reach out to them to learn more about the local “co-ops.” The idea is to create a group purchase of Howard County residents so that the best price and service can be obtained.

Here are the details on the upcoming workshops:

Community Solar

Community solar offers a different approach to solar – buying into a local solar project rather than installing panels on your own roof. Neighborhood Sun is a Maryland company that works to bring clean, affordable, local solar energy to Maryland community members.

Anyone in Howard County who pays a BGE or Pepco electric bill is eligible to subscribe to a solar project. To learn more about projects offered to Howard County residents, visit You can also call or chat by computer with one of their representatives about the details of the contracts.
