The Maryland Solar Congress is a free public conference that brings together solar supporters from across the state to learn and discuss the current state and future of solar energy in Maryland. The day will include presentations about solar technology, energy storage, community solar, and policy topics. We will also hold an open forum for all attendees to discuss the things solar supporters should focus on in the coming year.

This event is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome to attend!

The second annual Maryland Solar Congress will be hosted by MD SUN in partnership with Montgomery College.

If you are interested in volunteering to help out at the Solar Congress, contact Carra Cheslin.
