Many, many more solar resources
Those considering solar for their farm (or check out our residential/business webinar here) may want to hurry. A 26% tax credit goes down to 22% at the end of 2022. As Brian Foltz of Paradise energy said, installer schedules are filling up as everyone angles to get their panels installed before year's end.
As Jeremy Criss of the Office of Agriculture said in the meeting, a rule making session is underway to expand the community solar projects permitted in the Potomac Edison service area (under which most of the county's rural area falls). Until this is expanded there is a waiting list for projects to be approved. We are carefully monitoring this development and will host a community solar information session once there is more clarity on solar capacity.
MCA is teaming up with the Montgomery County Green Bank and County's Office of Agriculture to help you navigate decisions on solar installation. This is our second in a series of three webinars covering solar installation for different types of residences. Be sure to pick the webinar that best applies to you:
- Our first webinar back in May covered solar installations on single family residences and businesses.
- This session covers solar generation as an accessory use on farms.
- The third webinar, date TBD, will cover the provisions for large scale community solar.
Farms looking for an in-depth look at community solar information, stay tuned for a future webinar focused exclusively on this topic.
