Get to Know Your Solar Farm!

The Shepherd’s Mill solar farm aptly received its name by being located right off Shepherd’s Mill road in Union Bridge, Maryland. Nestled just outside downtown Union Bridge and close to Little Pipe Creek, the solar farm is located in Carroll County and sits right on the northeast border of Frederick County. The solar farm will generate an average of 2.9 Megawatts of electricity per year, and will supply roughly 700 homes with clean energy over its 25-year lifespan. 

Solar Helps Advance Resident Equality (S.H.A.R.E.)

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, a portion of the Shepherd's Mill 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 30% discount on their clean energy (20% more than General Subscribers).
