County Executive Jan
Gardner held a ground-breaking ceremony for Frederick County Government’s
first solar project. This major sustainability project will involve the
construction of a nearly 2 million kilowatt hour photovoltaic solar array on
4.9 acres of vacant land to provide low-cost renewable energy to the
Ballenger-McKinney Waste Water Treatment Plant.
“As the first solar project for Frederick County Government,
this project will save green by going green,” said Executive Gardner.
“Frederick County has a bright future using solar power!”
