Program Overview

For over a Century, energy has always generated at large central plants, often at a considerable distance from the customer. Advances in solar technology has made community solar projects financially feasible and gives customers innovative and affordable options to meet their changing needs.

The Maryland Public Service Commission has adopted regulations for a community solar pilot program with an emphasis on providing renewable energy benefits for low and moderate income customers. The program provides Pepco-MD customers an opportunity to receive renewable energy benefits.

The Four Participants in the Program Are:

  1. Community Solar Energy Generating System: Generates electricity using renewable sources.
  2. Subscriber Organization: Provides to Pepco's customers in MD shares in, or subscriptions to, the electricity produced by a CSEGS.
  3. Subscribers: Pepco customers within MD who have contracted with a Subscriber Organization for shares in, or subscriptions to, the electricity generated by a CSEGS.
  4. Pepco: Manages the interconnection of the MD CSEGS into the grid and processes subscription requests via the Community Solar Portal.
