Jones Farm Solar in Queen Anne’s County, Maryland

A Proposed Solar Project

in Queen Anne's County, Maryland

Jones Farm Solar is sited on a remote parcel of land with existing natural buffers. No prime farmland will be used and the design of the project incorporates wildlife corridors throughout, encouraging the natural habitat to thrive when construction is completed. The solar facility will be located in Queen Anne’s County and interconnected to an existing Del Marva Power & Light 69kV transmission line on site.

Jones Farm Solar is slated to begin construction in 2024.

Benefits

What does this project mean for you and your community?

LOCAL ECONOMIC IMPACT

Over its lifetime, Jones Farm Solar will pay tens of millions of dollars in tax revenues to the host county. That's 35 years of guaranteed revenue from a project that does not require costly infrastructure or public services, increase traffic or impact prime farmland. Further, during construction, the project will require hundreds of workers on site, which will provide an economic boost to area businesses and service providers.

LOCALLY GENERATED CLEAN ENERGY

Home-grown solar is vital to reducing America's dependence on foreign oil and enables Maryland to meet its target of 50% renewable energy by 2030 and 100% clean electricity by 2040 with zero carbon emissions. The transition to clean energy is powered by strong communities whose landowners, local businesses, and citizens recognize their critical role in making it happen.

LAND RESTORATION AND PROTECTION

Jones Farm Solar will not impact prime farmland and offers local landowners the opportunity to preserve large, open tracts of land that can be used for future generations when the solar facility is removed at the end of its useful life. During the life of Jones Farm Solar, wildlife corridors, pollinators, and other habitat-nurturing features will enable nature to continue to thrive, optimizing our mission as stewards of the land.
