Energy Company designates $90M for solar power

Rick Way - February 19th, 2010

A Baltimore energy company commits to renewable energy.


" Constellation Energy says it is setting aside $90 million to support the development of commercial-scale solar power systems.

Constellation Energy says the money will be used to finance, design, construct and own onsite solar installations for its customers. About $18 million has already been committed to projects in Maryland and New Jersey.

Baltimore-based Constellation Energy says it currently has about 25 megawatts of solar power systems installed or under development nationwide, including a 17.1-megawatt project in Emmitsburg that it says will be among the largest in the country."

DC energy created by the PV panels runs into the inverter and creats an alternating current (AC). Then AC current is metered prior to heading back into the grid.
