BALTIMORE (AP) McCormick + Co. says it is teaming with Constellation Energy to develop Maryland's largest rooftop solar power installation at the spicemaker's Belcamp distribution center.

The 1.8 megawatt installation follows a nearly 1 megawatt solar installation at McCormick's Hunt Valley site, also developed by Constellation. The two companies say construction is scheduled to begin in late June and finish by the end of the year.

Constellation Energy will finance, design and construct the installation, which it will own and maintain for 20 years. McCormick will buy the energy produced by the project.

Constellation estimates McCormick will save $3.4 million in electricity costs over the term of the agreement.
