OTHER PROJECTS

ILLINOIS

The Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA) in Illinois has kick-started solar development across the state.  FEJA allows for solar installations ranging from large utility scale projects to community solar projects to smaller residential rooftop systems.  In particular, Trajectory Energy Partners has focused on developing community solar projects across Illinois and continues to work with landowners to identify opportunities for future projects on sites of 30 acres or more.

MARYLAND

Maryland recently expanded its community solar program, providing increased access to solar for residents and commercial entities. Throughout the state, Trajectory Energy Partners is working with landowners to develop community solar projects on sites of 10 acres and up.

PENNSYLVANIA

Pennsylvania has the potential to see significant growth in solar energy production in the coming years. Trajectory Energy Partners is working with landowners to identify suitable sites for ground-mounted solar projects on sites of 80 acres or more.
