Project Description

Project / Program Description

Project SolShine seeks to enable community solar projects for Maryland's public housing authorities through the newly approved Maryland Community Solar Pilot Program. Project SolShine will assist public housing authorities take advantage of the Program's 30% set-aside for low- and moderate-income customers by planning, procuring, implementing, and managing community solar projects designed to benefit tenants of publicly assisted housing. Our team intends to facilitate the implementation of a 1MW community solar project (or multiple projects) that directly benefits ~285 publicly-assisted households. Our mission is to create a replicable model for the state's housing authorities to take full advantage of the Pilot Program, which reserves 60MW of capacity for projects that benefit low- and moderate-income customers. If we succeed in our mission, this project could spark the addition of over 16,000 solar powered LMI households in Maryland!
