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

February 01, 2010

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.
