February 22, 2022 – On Thursday, January 20th, Chaberton Energy received a unanimous approval from the Wicomico County Board of Appeals in favor of granting a Special Exception to build a 2-Megawatt (MW) Community Solar Project in Pittsville, MD. Project Greyrock will supply affordable, clean energy to residents and businesses within the Delmarva Maryland service area through a solar energy credit subscription service.
Chaberton Energy received very positive feedback, especially with regard to the planned pollinator habitat. The pollinator habitat will be developed using recommendations set forth in the Maryland Pollinator Protection Plan. The project will plant native wildflowers within the facility, which will promote the health and population of local pollinators, including butterflies, birds, and bees. The presence of a robust pollinator habitat has been shown to improve crop quality and yield on farms within a 5-mile radius.
Construction of Project Greyrock is scheduled to commence by the end of the year, and the project is expected to begin operations in mid-2023, helping Maryland reach its goal of generating 50% clean energy by 2030.
