Standard Solar Inc. is building a 2.5 MW photovoltaic power system for the Cecil County Public Schools in Maryland. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
The project will feature more than 7,500 solar panels in a ground-mounted array at the Cecil County School of Technology. The system will provide approximately 92% of Cecil County's Board of Education's six building electricity load.
SunEdison is financing the project through a power purchase agreement. The Maryland Energy Administration is providing a $98,000 grant to help offset the cost of interconnecting the solar system to the electrical grid.
