City officials signed off on a deal Wednesday to buy power from a new Constellation energy solar plant in Harford County. Under the terms of the agreement, the city will buy all of the land at the facility, known as Perryman Station.

But when it comes to lighting up a city, even all of the power from a solar plant only goes so far. The energy will be enough to power 3.7 percent of Baltimore for a year. That’s the equivalent of about 1,200 homes.
