You can purchase locally produced solar energy from a community power project if you live nearby. When you subscribe, you share power with low-income neighbors and help them reduce their bills.
If you own a building, parking lot, or undeveloped land, you can host a Community Power Project that produces solar electricity for your neighborhood. Share power with community solar and expand your mission.
Groundswell is excited to welcome Nicole Sonderegger to our team as our new Solar Program Operations Manager. Nicole brings with her a passion for empowering underserved communities and experience leveraging business acumen to build sustainable and scalable solutions for a more equitable and greener future. In this installment of our "Road to Groundswell" series, Nicole shares her story.
Groundswell stands on its core value of service. We were founded on a vision and mission of building community power through the lens of service. At Groundswell, we believe that service is a privilege, not a chore. It's one of the things we take pride in — putting people first and keeping them at the center of our community solar projects.
In June, Groundswell was awarded a $300,000 grant by the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) to design up to 30 resiliency hubs throughout Baltimore’s most climate vulnerable communities. These funds will make it possible for Groundswell to find out where it is feasible to install Resiliency Hubs in the Baltimore community — in terms of both architectural opportunities and potential host site locations.
