Direct Energy Solar Customer Stories Featuring Merritt Properties
Merritt was featured in a case study done by Direct Energy Solar. Here is a brief excerpt:
Merritt Properties is an industry leader in the Baltimore area in the field of LEED-certified building and has been committed to “greening” their buildings for many years. Their first certified LEED Gold project in Elkridge, MD, incorporated a 4.4kW solar installation. Their second registered LEED project –Schilling Green in Hunt Valley, MD – is intended to be LEED Platinum and features a 20kW solar system, designed and installed by Direct Energy Solar.
“Solar is what sustainability is all about,” said Josh Asbury of the Land and Development division of Merritt Properties. “It’s harnessing the power of the sun – an infinite source of energy. And solar is what tipped us from LEED Gold to LEED Platinum in the Schilling Green project.”
