projects and services


The Authority has been a leader in providing renewable energy from waste for many years.  As renewable energy resources are becoming more important, the Authority has expanded its role in providing renewable energy by developing solar energy projects at solid waste facilities. 

The 280 kw DC solar system on the roof of the Montgomery County Transfer Station helps to offset the electricity needs of the transfer station. 

Howard County’s New Cut Road Landfill  solar system has generated approximately 1,092 MWh of electricity since it began operating on Dec. 30, 2011, representing over 90% of the projected energy needs of Worthington Elementary School.
