Rockville homeowners forming solar energy co-op

Rockville residents interested in joining a new cooperative solar energy group can learn more at a May 5 meeting at City Hall. The City of Rockville is providing outreach support to an enterprise of MD SUN and Community Power Network, and the Rockville Environment Commission is organizing the effort.

The meeting will be at 7:00 PM, and you can register online.

This is only one of many alternative energy options out there. Homeowners should examine these programs carefully, and consider the pros and cons - as well as the age of their existing roof - before signing anything or installing solar panels.

Clark Reed, a Rockville Environment Commissioner, says that reverse metering will be available, and that residents who sign up in May will be able to get solar panels installed by September or October.
