The Flintstone Community Solar Farm is located directly at the intersection of Williams Road SE and Cresap Mill Road, right between Flintstone and Cumberland, Maryland. The farm's location lies in the middle of Allegany County surrounded by beautiful vegetation and forests, and sits near numerous streams that run down from Flintstone and Rocky Gap State Park. The solar farm will generate an average of 2.7 Megawatts of electricity per year, and will supply roughly 700 homes with clean energy over the next 25 years.
As a part of our efforts to increase access for the Low- and Moderate-Income (LMI) community through our S.H.A.R.E. program, just over half of the Flintstone Landfill Community Solar Project's shares of clean energy are guaranteed to benefit Low- and Moderate-Income Subscribers. To help offset the higher energy burden they are challenged with, these Income-Qualified Subscribers get a 20% discount on their clean energy (10% more than General Subscribers).
Since connecting to the grid in May 2021, the Flintstone Community Solar Farm has already saved local households in the Flintstone community nearly $100,000 in savings on their Potomac Edison/First Energy (PSE&G) bills. By subscribing to community solar, neighbors in your community were able to save on each electricity bill while also preventing over 2,964 metric tons of CO2-equivalent (the same amount of Carbon sequestered by 5,000 acres of U.S. forest in 1 year).
