Green Energy to beloved Sandy Hill Camp and Retreat Center

Northeast, MD – April 4, 2012 — Sandy Hill Camp and Retreat Center recently commissioned a 152 kW Solar System for their beautiful 220-acre facilities overlooking the stunning Chesapeake Bay. Dynamic Energy, a fully integrated energy developer provided design, engineering and construction.

For such a magnificent, natural piece of land, going green was an easy decision. Greg and Kathy Ann Joseph have been the camp directors at Sandy Hill since 1995. “Working with Dynamic Energy has proven to be a positive experience. We are impressed by the quality and responsiveness of their staff. We are excited to be able to showcase renewable energy to the thousands of campers, parents, and retreat guests who come to reconnect with the outdoors and to enjoy the beauty of camp on the Chesapeake Bay each year.” said Greg Joseph, Director of Sandy Hill Camp and Retreat Center.

Michael R. Cromer, Dynamic Energy’s Vice President of Operations, said; “Sandy Hill is the ideal place for solar, a beautiful camp facility making a sound economic investment in clean, renewable energy. We were delighted to have been a part of this construction and congratulate the Sandy Hill Camp and Retreat Center team on going solar.”

The newly installed system, constructed in partnership with AUI, Inc., is expected to offset 127 metric tons of CO2 each year, which is 3,175 tons over a quarter of a century. This is comparable to removing 625 cars from Maryland’s roads over the system’s 25 year warranted lifetime. Each year, the system is expected to generate approximately 185,000 hours of energy. That energy will be used directly by the many campground faculties. Read Solar Builder Magazine’s coverage of the camp’s solar project.
