Congratulations to Orchard Development Corporation for receiving the Builder of the Year Award from Potomac Edison ENERGY STAR New Homes for Orchard Park at Ballenger Run in Frederick, Maryland. Built by Morgan-Keller, the affordable apartment community with 210 rental apartment homes saved 324 MWh of energy, which accounted for 19% of Potomac Edison's annual energy savings goal.
Potomac Edison, along with the other electric utilities in Maryland, select award winners based on their contributions to the program, ranging from total energy savings to other notable impacts, including work with limited income housing. Orchard Park at Ballenger Run was the only limited income multifamily project in the Potomac Edison service area to achieve ENERGY STAR certification in 2019.
