Maryland based solar power solution will reduce carbon footprint, and generate revenue.

Howard County, MD (January 23, 2013) – Solar Energy World has completed the installation of a solar electric system at Boarman's Old Fashioned Meat Market in Howard County, Maryland. The unique, food, beer and wine retailer that has been serving customers for over 50 years selected Solar Energy World to design and install a solar system that will not only reduce the store's carbon footprint, but is projected to generate revenue in excess of $75,000. The 204.96kW Solar Photovoltaic System, which took one month to install, will also reduce Boarman's carbon footprint by 560,000 pounds.

According to Don Myers, Commercial Analysis Manager for Solar Energy World, the Boarman's solar system will produce revenue in two ways; direct energy replaced and through energy credits revenue. The system is directly tied to the market's electric meter, and excess production will flow back to the grid to be stored as credit against future electricity consumption.

"We're very proud that we are helping our community by pumping energy back into the grid, as well as saving money on our building's electricity bills and earning credits and rebates," says George Boarman, owner of Boarman's meat market. "We hope our customers will take the time to look at our place's system and call Solar Energy World to find out if their home or business is solar eligible. It's worth it."

Myers adds a word of caution, "If a business owner or homeowner is considering solar, we would suggest that they purchase or lease a system as soon as possible, as some of the tax credits and subsidies that assist in offsetting out-of-pocket costs could be discontinued, soon."
