Unusual Place for One of Largest Solar Arrays in Maryland

Maryland-based solar installer Standard Solar has completed a 701-kilowatt solar power array for an ice rink in its home town of Rockville.

One of the largest single rooftop solar systems in the state, the facility is expected to provide about 30% of the electricity supply for the Rockville Ice Arena.

Stuart Schooler, managing member of the Arena’s owners The Maven Group said: “This was an easy business decision. Ice rinks are an energy-intensive operation.”
