Upcoming Public Meeting on the Oaks Landfill Solar Photovoltaic Project

Community members are invited to participate in a discussion on the development of a Photovoltaic solar system, at the former Oaks Landfill. The public meeting will take place on October 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Laytonsville Elementary School located at 21401 Laytonsville Road in Gaithersburg.

Photovoltaic pulls energy from the sun and converts it to electricity. Solar is already an important part of the County’s strategy for renewable energy. Use of solar and other advanced energy technologies in County facilities not only improves energy independence, it is cleaner energy that saves money.

Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2018. This is a joint project with the County’s Departments of Environmental Protection and General Services.
