Officials unveil solar project for Baltimore

A ceremonial ribbon cutting took place on Eastern Avenue in Baltimore Tuesday, where city officials unveiled a solar energy project.

More than 4,000 solar panels have been placed at the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The panels are expected to save the city $6 million in energy cost throughout the life of the project.

The addition of the one-megawatt solar photovoltaic system will produce sustainable, clean energy for the city.

Next project: adding solar panels to the roof of the convention center.
