Project Name


Chester Woods Solar

Nexamp’s first community solar project in Maryland is also one of the first community solar projects built in the state. The Chester Woods project is part of a three-year Community Solar Pilot Program that was launched by the Maryland Public Service Commission to expand access to solar to all Maryland residents. Nexamp worked closely with Queen Anne’s County permitting officials to minimize the project’s impact on neighbors and the local environment.

Featuring more than 7,300 solar panels on 18 acres, the solar farm is built on land that is ideal for solar infrastructure with minimal disruption to the underlying landscape. The single-axis tracking system, Nexamp’s first, maximizes efficiency in capturing the energy of the sun throughout the day.

Customers of Delmarva Power are eligible to participate, and in accordance with state requirements, more than half of the project is reserved for low- to moderate-income residents, ensuring that the benefits of solar are readily available to everyone equally. Local non-profits and several low-income housing facilities are among the customers reaping benefits from this project.
