Project Focus: Constellation Energy to install 1.8MW system on McCormick distribution center rooftop


Constellation Energy will develop a 1.8MW solar PV system at the McCormick distribution center in Belcamp, Md. Once complete, this will be the largest single rooftop solar installation in Maryland, and the second solar installation developed for McCormick by Constellation Energy.

Michael Smith, senior vice president of green initiatives for Constellation Energy said, “We are very pleased to be working again with McCormick on a new solar installation. This affirms that Constellation Energy’s solar model creates an affordable and realistic renewable energy solution for our customers.”

Constellation Energy will finance, design and construct the installation, owning and maintaining the solar power system for 20 years. McCormick will then purchase the energy produced.

Alan Wilson, chairman, president, and CEO of McCormick said, “With this new project, McCormick becomes one of the largest corporate users of solar power in the state of Maryland. This is a great source of pride and a clear sign of our ongoing commitment to the environment and sustainability in general.”

The project will feature 8,372 crystalline PV panels on the facility’s 363,000 square foot rooftop. Construction is expected to begin in late June with estimated completion by the end of the year.
