Nautilus Solar Energy announced the ribbon cutting and operation of a 6.6-MW community solar project located on the former Panorama landfill site in Fort Washington, Maryland. The Panorama project is the largest operating residential community solar project in Maryland. The portfolio is comprised of four solar arrays on a single site and will produce enough energy to power 1,100 homes in the region. The project is qualified under the Maryland Community Solar Energy Generating System program. The energy generated by the projects will directly benefit qualified residential off-takers who are situated within PEPCO Maryland’s service territory.
Nautilus is responsible for the project management, long-term asset management and maintenance services for the life of the project, while Virgo Investment Group maintains ownership of the portfolio. Designed by Dewberry Engineers and installed by SolAmerica Energy, the project was originally co-developed by Summit Ridge Energy and SynerGen Solar before being acquired by Nautilus in 2018. The project is 100% subscribed by residential customers through a partnership with Neighborhood Sun.
