Despite the storms and dark clouds looming over most of Maryland today, this morning was a great day for solar as the weather held out for us over Queenstown Harbor golf course on Maryland’s Eastern Shore this morning. More than 200 golfers and invited guests joined The Brick Companies (TBC) and Standard Solar in a dedication ceremony for the new solar array located next to the 4th hole on the River Course.

Our president, Scott Wiater and Lex Birney, CEO of TBC made brief remarks, which were followed by a surprise appearance by “Dr. Frankenstein”, who flipped the 8 foot switch next to the array to “light” the 268 solar panels.

The event was held immediately prior to the annual TBC Classic golf tournament.

After the dedication, a few of the Standard Solar team played in the Classic, the proceeds of which benefit both The National Wildlife Federation and The Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center. It has been a great pleasure to work with TBC on this project, whose environmental and sustainability leadership is commendable.
