Solar, wind and energy-efficient upgrades on the way
Sandy Point State Park is a fine place to soak up the sun. Soon those rays will be turning into energy.
The Board of Public Works approved a $535,870 contract with Baltimore-based Bithenergy to evaluate, design and install park upgrades, reducing total energy consumption by an estimated 45 percent.
“Once installation is complete, Sandy Point will be the first state park to host alternative energy projects of this size and scale,” says parks superintendent Nita Settina.
