Baltimore energizes city with solar installation at Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant
RENEWABLE ENERGY WORLD - A recently completed solar installation at the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant is expected to save the city of Baltimore more than $6 million over the life of the project. During its construction phase, the project further supported the local economy through the addition of 75 jobs.
As part of a performance contract with Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI), a global leader in delivering solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, the installation is helping the city reach its goal of self-generating 30 percent of its electricity. The project also aligns with the EmPOWER Maryland initiative led by Governor Martin O’Malley and the City of Baltimore’s Sustainability goals.
