The Maryland Public Service Commission on Dec. 22 initiated its review of a Dec. 20 application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to construct a 45.9-MW (ac) solar photovoltaic facility in the City of Cambridge, Maryland.
The applicant is Egypt Road Solar LLC. The project would be located on three parcels totaling approximately 320 acres across two properties in the City of Cambridge in Dorchester County. According to Egypt Road Solar’s application, the project will have minimal environmental impacts and yield significant economic benefits to the state. The commission on Dec. 22 delegated the application to its Public Utility Law Judge Division to conduct review proceedings.
The company said that approximately 120-150 design, management, and construction personnel will work (remotely or on site) on the project at the height of construction, which is anticipated to be complete in December 2018.
The application itself is not available on the PSC website. The available documents show a law firm that is working for the developer. Maryland corporate records show Egypt Road Solar with this contact address: 337 Log Canoe Circle, Stevensville, MD 21666. An internet search shows this as the office address of Urban Grid Solar.
