PureSky Energy Acquires Chaberton's 2.47 MW Solar Project in Potomac, Md.

ROCKVILLE, Maryland, March 14, 2024 – Chaberton Energy is thrilled to announce that its 2.47 Megawatt (MW) solar project located in Potomac, Md., has been acquired by PureSky Energy.


This first collaborative project between Chaberton and PureSky Energy actively supports Maryland’s renewable energy goals. This strategic collaboration leverages the strengths of both companies to advance solar energy development in the region.


A distinctive feature of this project is the adoption of Erthos, an innovative solar mounting technology. Unlike traditional mounting systems, Erthos is designed to lay flat on the ground. This not only minimizes visual impact on surrounding areas but also optimizes land use, enabling a larger MW capacity per acre and setting a new benchmark for efficiency and community integration in solar installations.


“We are excited to embark on this journey with Chaberton Energy and to introduce our first project in Maryland,” said Jared Donald, president and chief executive officer of PureSky Energy. “This project is not just a step towards expanding our footprint; it’s a leap into the future of solar energy. By utilizing the Erthos mounting system, we are setting a new standard for solar installations that are both community-friendly and efficient.”


Stefano Ratti, chief executive officer of Chaberton Energy, said, “We are thrilled to partner with PureSky Energy, a company that shares our vision of helping communities access local, affordable, clean energy,” said Stefano Ratti, chief executive officer of Chaberton Energy. “It’s fulfilling to hand off this important project to a company that will uphold our commitments to the people of Montgomery County.”


Ratti called attention to all the collaborators who made this project possible. “We are grateful to those who helped get us to this point,” he said. “Especially the Montgomery County Planning Board along with the review staff, our host landowner, the Erthos team and of course the hard-working team at Chaberton who championed this project from start to finish. This is a win for community members, Montgomery County, PureSky, Chaberton and the environment.”


The Potomac solar project is expected to play a crucial role in providing renewable energy to the local community and paving the way for future sustainable projects in the area.
