Frederick wants Md. to help pay for county's solar panels

Frederick County wants the state to help in adding solar collection systems on county buildings. County commissioners have approved a letter of interest to be sent to the Maryland Energy Administration about the public-private partnership. The state has $5 million to $6 million to install solar rooftop panels on state and local government buildings. The panels would allow the county to save on energy bills while giving a private developer the opportunity to install and retain ownership of the system.
