As part of a $27.6 million comprehensive energy-saving maintenance contract, Pepco Energy Services Inc. will install an aggregate 750 kW photovoltaic system on two building rooftops owned by the Maryland Port Administration.
The electricity generated will be used to directly power these facilities during peak operational hours, producing an estimated $93,400 per year in electricity savings, according to Pepco Energy.
The project also includes measurement and verification services, along with equipment maintenance over the entire contract term. Maryland Port Administration employees and clients will benefit from this project as well as through an Energy Awareness program to be initiated by Pepco Energy Services, the company says.
Construction is already under way and is scheduled to be completed in November 2012.
