Montgomery County residents are looking for ways to help the environment and save money on their energy bill.
Maryland offers incentives for homeowners to switch to solar energy and do solar co-ops. A group called MD Sun has a solar co-op in Montgomery County.
They answer questions about solar energy and helped residents with resources to get started. The group is meeting at the Poolesville Town Hall Wednesday night to inspire others to go green.
“We produce more solar energy in a year than our house requires and that includes our electric cars. So we don’t have an electric bill,” said Joyce Breiner of Poolesville Green.
According to the Montgomery County Solar Co-op, switching to solar energy can save you more than $2,500 in the first year.
