The Renewable Energy Sub-Team wants you to go solar! UUCC is partnering with Neighborhood Sun (https://neighborhoodsun.solar/uucc/) to help the UUCC congregation and others sign up for Community Solar. This is something almost everyone can do to reduce our carbon footprint.

You can now save at least 10% on your electric bill (low and mid-income people can save even more- 25%), help to decrease our reliance on fossil fuels, and help UUCC (we earn $75 for each sign-up).

Currently, the BGE Henryton project still has space for Low/middle income qualified folks. You will save 25% off of BGE rates. Income chart is on sign-up page or you can go to: https://neighborhoodsun.solar/verify/ .

Signing up is simple – We need your Utility Acct#, and one form of payment, either a bank account or credit card.

​​​​​​​Everyone can sign up today!  Go To:  https://neighborhoodsun.solar/uucc/   (FYI- best to use Chrome when subscribing). Reserve your spot for the next Neighborhood Sun/BGE project.

Community Solar in Maryland: Back in 2015, Maryland passed legislation that would enable residents to subscribe to community solar farms all throughout the state. With that, the Community Solar Pilot Program was launched and is regulated by the Public Service Commission. This, in part, directly contributes to Maryland’s goal of obtaining 50% of its electricity to come from renewable energy sources by 2030. But, in order to reach that goal, we need community solar subscribers to ensure that the shared solar farms are built.

We expect that the Community Solar Pilot Program will bring roughly 196 megawatts of solar energy to the state, along with thousands of clean energy jobs.
