Gov. Martin O'Malley, D-Md., has appointed two executives from the solar energy industry to fill two vacancies on the board of directors of the Maryland Clean Energy Center.
Eric Wachsman, director of the University of Maryland's Energy Research Center, will serve through June 2015. George Ashton, co-founder and chief financial officer of Sol Systems Inc., an aggregator of solar renewable energy credits, is fulfilling a term that runs through September 2012.
The board will oversee the center's mission: helping consumers, supporting businesses and advising lawmakers in Maryland as the state scales up its clean energy industries and energy-efficiency initiatives.
