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 https://neighborhoodsun.solar/. You can also call or chat by computer with one of their representatives about the details of the contracts.
