In The News

Some residents of the Belair-Edison neighborhood are all smiles today. They’re seeing a big drop in their utility bills because of the sun.... Solar energy has come to the community. Six weeks ago, Wade Watkins has 14 solar panels installed on his roof.... “My energy bill went from basically from a little over $200, down to maybe like $80,” he tells WJZ. “So that’s a great savings to me.” ... What’s happening in Baltimore is part of a growing solar industry.... “Baltimore is leading the way in terms of clean energy initiatives,” says U.S. Representative John Sarbanes (MD-3). “It represents a tremendous opportunity for what we can do as a country.”
