Project: Ameresco Oaks Landfill 1

The Oaks Landfill community solar project is a groundbreaking project for Montgomery County and Maryland as a whole. This solar farm, constructed, owned, and operated by Ameresco Inc., will be located on 16 acres of the former Oaks Landfill in Gaithersburg.  Additionally, this is the largest community solar farm in the country to reserve 100% of its power for low- and moderate-income (LMI) residents who receive their electricity via Pepco.  This ensures residents who qualify as LMI to receive 25% savings on their electricity costs every month.

How it works from signup to savings

When you sign up for a community solar project, you will receive credits each month on your electricity bill. These credits will go toward offsetting the cost of your bill, allowing you to save money and contribute to a more sustainable future. It's that simple. Here are the three easy steps to make it happen.

1. Provide Basic Details

Fill out a subscription form with basic details (name, email, etc.) and have a recent electricity bill handy. As you continue your registration, you'll have to enter your utility account number and energy usage information so we can determine the right amount of the solar project to allocate to your bill.


2. Access MySolar

Once you've subscribed, you will be given access to a personal dashboard where you can see the project's solar energy production, your document library (contract, bills, etc.) and your monthly savings.


3. See Savings

You will start seeing savings on your electricity bill about one month after your community solar project becomes operational.
