Don’t lose all of that warmth generated throughout the day when the sun sets. Assure your pool’s temperature does not drop too much by protecting it at night through use of a solar blanket.
  • TRIM TO FIT - Your pool may be uniquely shaped and getting the right fit is as easy as finding a marker and sharp pair of scissors. Have the bubbles facing down to the water and trace a line on the cover showing where you should cut off the additional material. Do so confidently knowing this won’t affect the manufacturer’s warranty---they understand.

First Solar: Creating Jobs in Hagerstown, Maryland and Contributing to Maryland’s Renewable Energy Goal

First Solar Inc. is planning to develop a solar energy project in Hagerstown, Maryland that will create 125 construction jobs, generate enough solar energy to power 2,700 homes, and help meet Maryland’s renewable energy goals.

First Solar, Inc., based in Tempe, Arizona, announced in March, 2020 that it acquired 100% of Maryland Solar and plans to build a 20 megawatt photovoltaic solar power project in Hagerstown, Maryland. According to Frank De Rosa, First Solar Senior Vice President for business development in the Americas, the project is expected to create 125 construction jobs. Construction is expected to start in the second quarter of 2020 and will be completed by the fourth quarter of 2020.

According to First Solar, the project will generate enough solar energy to power approximately 2,700 average homes in Maryland. The CO2 emissions displaced by the use of solar energy each year will be the equivalent of taking 4,400 cars off the road. And the project will contribute to meeting Maryland's renewable energy and green jobs goals.

The Maryland Energy Administration indicates that the Renewable Portfolio Standard for Solar Energy, signed into law by Maryland's Governor O'Malley, requires 20 percent of Maryland's electricity to be generated from renewable energy sources by 2022. Two percent of that must come from solar energy. In 2020, a goal was set of providing the 20 percent from in-state renewable energy sources, in order to reduce the cost of relying on imported renewable energy credits.

Other sources of renewable energy included in Maryland's goal, in addition to solar, include hydroelectric, land-based and offshore wind, landfill gas, and energy generated from wastes and animal litter.

In addition to the renewable energy goals, the State of Maryland also has a goal of reducing per capita energy consumption and per capita peak demand by 15 percent by the end of 2020 compared to a baseline in 2020. According to its Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Act of 2020, Maryland is also required to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2020 based on 2020 levels.

As reported on the SolarServer website, the project in Hagerstown, Maryland was previously called the Maryland Solar Farm, under development by Maryland Solar LLC, a subsidiary of Beowulf Energy LLC, based in Maryland. The solar energy project will involve an investment of $70 million and will be built on land leased by the State of Maryland. First Solar has a contract to sell the electricity and renewable energy credits from the Hagerstown project to FirstEnergy Solutions.

First Solar uses proprietary cadmium telluride thin film photovoltaic modules in its solar energy projects. As indicated in the SolarServer article, in March, 2020, Lux Research Inc. from Boston announced that First Solar had become the world's largest producer of photovoltaic modules by volume, producing 7% of global aggregate modules. According to Lux Research, the world's largest producer of photovoltaic modules by revenue is Suntech Power Holdings Company Ltd. in China.
