UMMS: Innovation in Healthcare & Solar Energy
Together with Constellation and BithEnergy, the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) is taking advantage of solar energy that allows it to serve as a role model for the adoption of clean, sustainable, renewable energy. The solar power is generated from a 3.66-megawatt DC, grid-connected generation project located in Somerset County,Md.
electricity generated by the solar installation is purchased by UMMS under a
20-year power purchase agreement. As
part of its purchase agreement, UMMS receives Solar
Renewable Energy Credits that help satisfy Maryland’s Renewable Energy Portfolio
