Editorial: Carroll County should continue to build on solar energy successes

By taking “bold steps to encourage solar energy growth and remove obstacles to solar development,” Carroll County recently became the first county and second jurisdiction in Maryland to be designated “SolSmart Silver.”

The national designation program, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, recognizes jurisdictions that “foster the development of mature local solar markets.”

“For companies looking to expand, a SolSmart Silver designation is a signal that Carroll County is ‘open for solar business,’ ” a news release from the county touts.

We’re hopeful county leadership will continue to build on these successes of embracing solar energy by considering changes to local zoning to open access to more residents.
