PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md., April 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CleanChoice Energy, a renewable energy company that empowers people and businesses to cut emissions and live cleaner lives, has opened 3 megawatts of community solar capacity for Prince George's County residents. The Simba Community Solar Farm broke ground earlier this year in Cheltenham, Maryland and is nearing completion. Residents that sign-up for the new farm through CleanChoice Energy Community Solar can expect to save approximately 10% off their utility bills. The new community solar project will generate about 4,500,000 kWh of electricity in its first year, which is enough energy to avoid burning approximately 3,500,000 pounds of coal.
Maryland's Community Solar program offers landowners and farmers the opportunity to create predictable, long-term revenue through hosting solar projects, while opening the benefits of solar to the hundreds of thousands of Maryland residents that either do not own their own home or do not have a roof that works for solar. Simba Community Solar Farm subscribers can see up to a 10% savings on their utility bills with no upfront investment, setup fees, or installation.
The CleanChoice Energy Community Solar platform connects people to local Community Solar projects, allowing residents and businesses to sign-up to support local solar in minutes.
