Maryland PSC to review 3.3-MW solar project in Dorchester County

The Maryland Public Service Commission sent out an April 3 order accepting for review an April 1 application by OneEnergy Cambridge Solar LLC for a 3.3-MW solar project.

The company has applied for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to construct a 3.3-MW solar photovoltaic facility to be site in Dorchester County, Md. The project would be located on a 25 acre privately-owned site pursuant to a long term lease from a private landowner. The site is part of a larger 362.3- acre, leased farm located at Bucktown Road and is approximately one mile north of Indian Bone Road.

The application also states that because the proposed solar panels are low to the ground, the esthetic impact to the site and surrounding area will be minimal.

The application itself wasn’t available on the PSC website as of April 3.
