Energy Answers for Local Businesses
A total solution that integrates diverse energy resources into a single plan


WGL Energy (WGL Energy Services and WGL Energy Systems) solar solutions provide environmentally-responsible, cost-effective options for commercial, industrial and government customers who are committed to stabilizing their energy costs, reducing their carbon footprint and protecting the environment.

Our offsite projects – which include new solar and existing wind developments – are ideal for organizations that lack the physical space or in-house resources for an onsite operation. Using our Distributed Impact™ approach to energy management, our team of energy experts will provide a total solution that integrates diverse energy resources into one plan designed to support your profitability and sustainability goals while providing you with access to clean, affordable, secure and resilient energy solutions.  

In 2017, we structured an offsite solar supply solution from a 10.8 megawatt ground-mounted facility in Frederick County, Maryland. The project provides power to Washington, D.C.’s Capital One Arena, which is owned by Monumental Sports & Entertainment, and the National Geographic Society, as well as the 28 Walker Development in Baltimore, Maryland – all three of which are located in congested, downtown urban areas.

Constructed and operated by Cypress Creek Renewables, the solar farm will supply 25 percent of the power needs of the Capital One facility matched with national solar renewable energy credits, which alone will consume about 4.7 million kWh per year of output from the solar installation.

WGL has served as the official energy and greening partner of Capital One Arena since 2015, donating carbon offsets to counterbalance emissions from Washington Wizards, Washington Capitals and Washington Mystics home games, concerts and other events. Last year, more than 3,123 tons of greenhouse gas emissions from 201 events at the arena were counterbalanced with carbon offsets. This is equivalent to avoiding the consumption of over 351,000 gallons of gasoline or taking 660 cars off the road for one year.
