Constellation, a subsidiary of Exelon Corp., has begun construction of a 5.1 MW solar project for the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC).
The solar power system is composed of approximately 16,500 photovoltaic modules located on carports that will cover more than 1,400 parking spaces spread among the CCBC's three main campuses in Dundalk, Essex and Catonsville. Constellation will also install 10 duplex electric vehicle charging stations as part of the project.
The projectÂ – is expected to generate approximately 6.5 GWh of electricity per year, which is enough to meet approximately 27% of the college's needs. Constellation will own and operate the solar power systems. The CCBC will purchase the electricity generated by the project under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
