Maryland STEM Festival goes blue collar — Technical.ly
We’ve been fishing for stories that spotlight Baltimore’s sustainability partnerships that bring together teams from public, private and nonprofit sectors. From Civic Works’ solar job training to cleaning up the Inner Harbor, many partnerships are making Baltimore better.
On the St. Ambrose Aigburth Vale Senior Community’s rooftop in Towson last week, yet another great partnership was at work. It was there that Maryland Democratic Rep. John Sarbanes, Constellation solar volunteers and GRID Alternatives Mid-Atlantic solar trainees gathered to outfit the building with a sustainable supply of energy.
Marylanders are lucky, as we have a choice about what type of electricity powers our homes – coal-fired or renewable. This month, switching from BGE’s standard coal-fired to Clearview’s renewable product saves about $100* in one year. Why pay more for polluting coal, when wind is cheaper? It’s mind-boggling to compare the options, so we’ve done the work for you. The monthly Maryland Climate-Friendly Electricity Guide is designed for residential customers and offers a how-to that compares rates.
