Renewable Energy in Maryland

Hey! What’s new in Baltimore? A comprehensive Community Solar program that offers both clean energy and guaranteed savings, for starters. Maryland established a target to achieve 100% clean electricity by 2040. At Ampion, we’re doing our part to help build support for the Community Solar movement in Maryland.

Maryland currently generates 4.3% of the state’s power through solar energy and has set a goal of achieving 100% renewable energy by 2040. Ampion is helping with this effort by building support for the Community Solar movement in Maryland. We’re helping state residents take advantage of the benefits — 10% savings on credits generated by their share of the solar farms, and moving the state closer to its renewable energy goals. Each new subscriber plays an important role, because with no subscribers, there would be no solar farms.

Community Solar in Maryland is supported by a dual billing system: one bill from your utility provider and one from Ampion with the discount on your bill credits. Residents, small businesses, and large commercial groups are eligible for Community Solar in Maryland.

Ampion Billing in Maryland

The State of Maryland has created a dual billing Community Solar program. This means you'll receive two bills each month: one from your utility (for example, BGE, Pepco, or Potomac Energy), and one from Ampion.

Renewable energy credits are applied to your utility bill each month, based on your share of the energy produced by the solar farm. These credits reduce and in many cases eliminate any payments owed to the utility.

You then pay Ampion at a discount for those credits. This is where the savings come in!

In Maryland, the discount is 10%. Think of this as every dollar of credit only costing you 90 cents. So you pay Ampion less than what you would have paid the utility.

Sound too good to be true? We hear that a lot! These savings are made possible by state programs designed to increase adoption of renewable energy in Maryland. The result is a win for everyone involved.
