Mayor: Union Bridge not in favor of solar project unless farm can be annexed to provide tax revenue

Union Bridge officials are not in favor of a proposed solar project that would fall just outside the town’s limits, but the decision on whether the project moves forward is in the hands of the Maryland Public Service Commission. On Monday night, the PSC held a second public hearing in Union Bridge to discuss the solar project with local residents. The proposed project, brought forward by Boston-based company Citizens UB Solar, has been downsized, but still doesn’t meet the town’s standards, according to Union Bridge Mayor Perry Jones. Jones said the town is not in favor of the solar farm because it isn’t consistent with Union Bridge’s master plan. (Carr. Co. Times)
