Delivering roughly 17 MW of solar to the Belcamp and Rosedale communities is a big accomplishment for LBA and we look forward to future opportunities,” said Michelle German, Vice President of ESG at LBA Logistics.
“Summit Ridge Energy is proud to expand our community solar leadership in Maryland by partnering with LBA and Black Bear Energy on these projects and increasing access to clean energy.

We look forward to continuing to help LBA develop solar across their assets nationwide.”
