Standard Solar, Inc., a leader in the full-service development, installation and financing of solar electric systems for commercial, government and residential customers, today announced it will officially activate a 701 kilowatt solar energy system on the Rockville Ice Arena—one of the largest single rooftop solar energy systems in Maryland—on Thursday, November 18, 2010.
