Rockville-based Standard Solar Inc. acquired the 2.9 megawatt (MW) Klees Mill community solar project from developer partners Ogos Energy LLC and Earth and Air Technologies.
This most recent project marks a total of about 10 MW acquired and being implemented in Carroll County with these developer partners.
In addition to providing subscribers with cost savings, the solar farm will help mitigate climate change and offset CO2 emissions and power about 400 homes electricity annually.
The Klees Mill Community Solar project is a 2.9 MW ground-mount solar array in Sykesville, featuring 7,344 solar modules. It is expected to produce 4,458,000 kilowatt-hours of solar energy annually, which is equivalent to offsetting the greenhouse gas emissions from 687 passenger vehicles driven for one year and the CO2 emissions of 355,000 gallons of gasoline consumed annually.
Standard Solar owns and operates more than 220 MW of community solar projects around the United States.
