To help meet its climate and energy goals, Montgomery County has issued a Request for Energy Proposals (RFEP) to install solar electric power generation systems on 12 County parking garages. Montgomery County will be among the first east coast urban areas to install solar panels on top of its parking facilities. The project will not reduce the number of parking spaces.
The project is expected to save money; reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with electricity generation; and promote local economic activity and job growth.
Proposals are due by September 5, and construction is expected to begin in early 2015. More information is available on the Division of Parking Management’s website.
