Plisko Sustainable Solutions, LLC is proud to to work with Pearlstone and The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore (The Associated) to increase the amount of solar energy the organizations rely on for powering their operations. The Associated’s most ambitious environmental initiative is its effort to establish an aggregate net meter solar farm for Associated-owned buildings. The energy generated by the solar farm would be pumped into the main power grid, which would assist with grid capacity and reduce the necessity of building new power plants.
Pearlstone plants to get 75% of its energy from The Associated’s solar farm and is also working on building solar panels on lodge buildings and installing a small solar field in one of the pastures, where sheep can graze beneath the solar panels, symbolic of how farming and solar energy production can coexist.
Pearlstone’s other environmentally conscious actions include the installation of electric vehicle charging stations, LED lights, and building automation systems that monitor and adjust heat and air conditioning as needed, among others. Read the full article in Baltimore’s Jewish Times HERE.
