The Tower Companies is continuing their commitment to green and sustainable building with its latest project, a 573 kW solar PV canopy located in the parking lot of their Class A, multi-tenant office building at 1101 Wootton Parkway in Rockville, Maryland.

According to an article on, “the system is currently under construction and consists of 1,318 Cradle to Cradle solar panels from SunPower, an American based company, that are spread across seven different arrays. The carport structure was manufactured by RBI Solar.

Once complete, the project will generate about 680,000 kWh of clean, local energy and will supply solar power directly to the adjacent office building to offset over 20% of annual electricity demand. The project also includes the installation of four new electric vehicle charging stations, which was required as part of a generous Maryland Energy Administration grant.”

Lerch Early land use attorney Bill Kominers represented Tower on this project.
