Solar Energy On The Way To Wicomico Co.

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - Big changes could be on the way for electricity in Wicomico County's government buildings.

Public Works Director Lee Beauchamp tells 47 ABC, the county solicited five bids for solar energy earlier this year. "Solar City" apparently had the best proposal, which includes a 20-year contract with the county, and would reportedly save $160,000 in electricity costs each year. Beauchamp says some of this money, comes from taxpayers.

He says the county hopes to sign the documents at the next council meeting and start construction on the solar panels on January 1st.
