Attorney’s note – In 2019 the Maryland Court of Appeals held that state law preempts by implication local zoning law with respect to solar energy generating systems that require a certificate of public convenience and necessity issued by the Maryland Public Service Commission, but cautioned that local zoning law should still receive due consideration by the Public Service Commission in rendering its ultimate decision, Board of County Commissioners of Washington County v. Perennial Solar, 464 Md. 610, 644–45 (2019).
