All Solar Panels are Pervious in Maryland
Green Building Law Update
MARCH 30, 2015
By statute all solar panels are pervious in Maryland. Of course that doesn’t mean that rain actually passes through the solar panels or that in Maryland the panels are constructed to be any more permeable than elsewhere. Maryland is not trying to alter the laws of science, but rather seeking through public policy to prioritize environmental stewardship. Unfortunately, the law to date has had little, if any, effect in Maryland. The law is not unique to Maryland.
