Maryland has advanced a three-year community solar pilot program which is expected to jumpstart community solar, demonstrating the viability of the segment in the state.

Community solar models can overcome the constraints of net metering through partnerships with utilities and also provide a return on their investment instead of a reduction in the participant’s utility bill.
