Greenbelt Community Solar, LLC
Greenbelt Community Solar, LLC is composed of a group of residents who set up a solar power generation plant on a host building in Greenbelt. We are following the model established by the University Park Community Solar LLC, which installed a 22 kW array on the University Park Church of the Brethen in the Spring of 2010.
We want to replace some of the electricity generated by PEPCO (from fossil fuels) and at the same time lower Greenbelt’s carbon footprint. More narrowly, our goal is to generate renewable electricity local to a Greenbelt host site. Solar electricity is both produced and consumed at the host site.
Clean renewable energy comes to Greenbelt
Here is a short history of our progress to date:
We first started meeting in Aug/Sept 2010. We held a public informational meeting in
October 2010, sponsored by GCAN (Greenbelt Climate Action Network). We then spent the winter pursuing 5 "host sites". We signed our Operating Agreement (9 initial members) on May 9.
On July 28, 2011 a 20 year Power Purchase Agreement was signed between Greenbelt Community Solar, LLC. & Greenbelt Baptist Church. Electricity will be generated by a 21.6 kw solar photovoltaic array mounted on the church roof. Click here for photos.
On September 8, we held our Subscribers Meeting. We now have a total of 34 subscribers.
On September 23, we signed the contract with Astrum Solar and signed a Change Order (for
American-made panels) on Oct 24. Click here for photos

Installation of the solar panels began on Monday, December 19th. Crews from Astrum Solar took about a week to complete the project. Click here for installation photos.
On December 30, 2011 the array went into production.
