Working Together to Meet Our Customers' Sustainability Goals
Learn how we helped MOMís Organic Market further its company mission

 

MOM’s Organic Market (MOM’s) is a family-owned and -operated Maryland-based grocery store. MOM’s mission is to protect and restore the environment, as stated on its Our Purpose page. MOM’s has a history of implementing sustainable business practices, through its efforts to reduce the use of plastic, conserve energy, adopt green construction of its facilities and the widespread use of renewable energy.

From a renewable energy perspective, MOM’s initially installed solar panels in a couple of locations but faced limitations in expanding onsite solar, such as a lack of rooftop space. WGL Energy Systems and WGL Energy Services (WGL Energy) responded with our offsite solar solution, designed especially for mid-sized businesses.

WGL Energy’s offsite solar solution includes a 20-year solar electricity supply agreement and is based on our innovative Distributed Impact™ approach, a total solution that integrates diverse energy resources into one plan designed to support MOM’s profitability and sustainability goals.

Customers like MOM’S receive energy from an offsite solar project without taking on the risks or commitments that come with onsite operations, and their managed energy portfolio combines a long-term fixed renewable supply price with the flexibility of a short-term retail electricity supply agreement.

Since July 1, 2016, MOM’s has purchased all power from a designated solar farm in Kingsville, Maryland, bundled with national solar renewable energy credits. This solar farm is owned and operated by WGL Energy Systems. The 1.5-megawatt system, with a total generation of 3,223,220 kilowatt-hours to date, will account for 25% of the total power needs of MOM’s stores in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
