2 MW Solar Project Nears Completion: Allow Hundreds of Delmarva Power’s Customers to Save Money on Utility Bills and Support Local Jobs

Dorchester County, MD May 26, 2021CleanChoice Energy, a cleantech company that empowers people and businesses to access climate solutions, is accepting subscriptions for a Dorchester County community solar project, Glassywing Solar. Once complete, the new community solar project will allow several hundred Delmarva Power customers to support local jobs, environmental protection, and strengthen community solar while saving up to 10 percent on their utility bills. Glassywing Solar’s clean energy supports the avoidance of 70,000 metric tons of air pollution – the equivalent of removing 14,600 cars from our roads annually.

“Delmarva customers can now save up to 10 percent on their utility bills while supporting local solar jobs, supporting pollinator habitat, and reducing harmful pollution,” said Tom Matzzie, CEO of CleanChoice Energy. “Our goal is to make supporting renewable energy as easy as possible. With community solar, almost everyone with a utility bill can access the benefits of solar.”

“Community solar is one of the most effective ways to expand the role of solar energy into more people’s lives, so we are pleased to have funded and constructed the Glassywing Solar project and its pollinator friendly mission,” said Eric Partyka, Director of Business Development-National Accounts, Standard Solar. “As the project’s proud owners, we look forward to serving its customers for decades to come.”

Community solar shares solar energy benefits when consumers cannot install solar panels on their property. Subscribers benefit from the electricity generated at the community solar project, which costs less than the price they would ordinarily pay. The community benefits from local jobs, the expanded tax base, and the growth of renewable energy. To enhance the project’s environmental integrity, Glassywing Solar will also include landscaping designed to provide food and habitat to local pollinators.

Standard Solar, a nationally recognized leader in the development, funding, ownership, and operation of commercial and community solar assets based in Maryland, funded and will own and maintain the project. OneEnergy Renewables, through its regional office in Washington, D.C., initiated, developed, and permitted the Glassywing Solar project.

Subscriptions are available to anyone that receives a Delmarva utility bill; area residents interested can sign-up today at: https://go.cleanchoiceenergy.com/glassywing
