  • National Geographic Society - 5.9 MW Corporate PPA deal

National Geographic and Monumental will purchase the electricity from Cypress Creek Baker Point PV Plant

Baker Point solar is the first solar site in Maryland to be certified , producing enough electricity annually to power the equivalent of more than 2,000 homes. National Geographic and Monumental Sports (for the Capital One Arena in Washington, DC) will purchase the electricity produced by this solar project, matched with national solar renewable energy credits, through a long-term contract with WGL Energy Services, Inc.
This is not a typical solar site. In addition to producing clean, renewable energy, Baker Point solar hosts honey-producing hives that each produce an average of 30 pounds of honey each season. Tended by an acclaimed University of Maryland honeybee biologist, the pollinators will forage for nectar and pollen widely throughout the solar site, which has been seeded with nine different species of native long-stemmed and short-growing flowers and warm-season grasses.
