Montgomery County, MD

The CHP Tour event in Montgomery County, MD will include a site visit to the Montgomery County Public Safety Headquarters in Gaithersburg, MD. The event will be held on April 24th from 10:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

The CHP Tour event will consist of informational presentations about CHP technology and specifically share information about the state-of-the-art project at the MOCO PSHQ. 


The project includes multiple clean energy technologies integrated to operate seamlessly, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 5,900 metric tons annually, the equivalent of taking more than 1,200 cars off the road. The project design includes 2 megawatts (MW) of solar photovoltaic canopies mounted over the existing parking lot, an 800 KW Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system, electric vehicle charging stations and a cyber security system. The facility benefits from Maryland’s credits provided under Maryland policies that favor clean energy sources and a combined aggregate net energy metering policy which allows government organizations to credit excess generation to other facilities and receive a retail credit for each kilowatt hour generated. In addition, the project upgraded the existing medium and low voltage infrastructure for the facility. PSHQ is the first facility of its kind to achieve Platinum certification from the Green Business Certification Inc.’s (GBCI) PEER rating system recognizing sustainable infrastructure. PEER (Performance Excellence in Energy Renewal) is the power system corollary to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building rating system.
