What is community solar?

Community solar facilities are referred to as “community solar energy generating systems” or “CSEGS” in Maryland law.  A community solar facility allows a property owner to use solar energy as a power source without having to install or construct a facility on site.  A community solar facility is a subscription-based service and power supply that provides a credit or reduction in your electric bill in exchange for a monthly subscription fee.  A property owner can subscribe to any community solar facility in your power company’s service area with available subscriptions.  The facility does not have to be located in Carroll County. 

For more information describing community solar (CSEGS), please see the booklets available under Public Outreach.
