Caroline County Public Schools, Washington Gas Energy Systems, Inc. And Kenyon Energy Dedicate Largest Public Schools Solar Project On Maryland’s Eastern Shore

Stocks in this article: WGL

Caroline County Public School Officials today joined local elected officials and representatives from Washington Gas Energy Systems, Inc. and Kenyon Energy to dedicate three ground-mounted solar systems with the expected annual energy output of 2,800 MWh of renewable electricity. The solar arrays will provide power to the Caroline Career and Technology Center (CCTC), North Caroline High School, Colonel Richardson Middle and High Schools as well as Greensboro Elementary School all located within the Caroline County Public School District.

“Today, we are pleased to dedicate these three solar projects which, in total, have created the largest public school affiliated solar project on Maryland’s Eastern Shore,” said Dr. Khalid Mumin, Superintendent of Caroline County Public Schools. “These arrays will provide clean, renewable energy to our classrooms, as well as help improve our local air and water quality. In fact, over 30-years, this solar project will allow us to reduce greenhouse gases equal to the planting of nearly 326,450 trees.”

Washington Gas Energy Systems, Inc. will own and operate the systems, which were built with no up-front costs to the schools through a power purchase agreement. The arrays were designed and installed by Kenyon Energy. The three arrays of 919 kW-DC (CCTC and North Caroline High School), 796 kW-DC (Colonel Richardson Middle and High Schools) and 315 kW-DC (Greensboro Elementary), combined create a 2,030 kW-DC ground-mounted system consisting of 8,288 solar panels.

“We thank Caroline County Public Schools and its Officials for their environmental stewardship and support of this solar initiative, one that is in keeping with our mission to invest in the development of renewable energy assets,” said Sanjiv Mahan, Vice President of Business Development for Washington Gas Energy Systems. “We also recognize and appreciate the commitment of the County Commissioners, local community, contractors and Kenyon Energy. Their dedication played a significant role in the ability to complete this substantial solar project. Over the last three years, WGL Holdings, Inc. has invested more than $92 million into the development of solar generation nation-wide and $40 million in Maryland.”
