Maryland mall adds 2 MW solar rooftop
The Francis Scott Key Mall in Frederick, Maryland announced on August 20 that its new 2,056-kilowatt solar rooftop system is operational. The mall features more than 70 retailers and it owned by PREIT, a real estate investment trust.
The rooftop system was developed by Safari Energy and represents the company’s fifth project with PREIT. "We partnered with Safari Energy on our first rooftop solar project at Cherry Hill Mall in New Jersey, and we are pleased to continue building on this partnership with five installations now complete," said Joseph F. Coradino, CEO of PREIT. "Safari Energy has helped us realize significant economic value and environmental benefits from previously unused roof space from Massachusetts to Maryland, enhancing our sustainability efforts."
Safari Energy developed the Francis Scott Key Mall project, conducting site analysis, engineering design, financial, tax and legal structuring, incentive capture, permitting, construction management and interconnection approval. The project has now moved into the asset management phase, with Safari Energy providing the site with operations and maintenance services. Safari Energy is similarly providing ongoing O&M services in Maryland for systems installed at Mondawmin Mall in Baltimore and Federal Plaza in Bethesda.
