Constellation Energy Group, Inc. said Tuesday it would build a solar power plant in Maryland that will be the state's largest when completed in 2012.

The company, which is headquartered in Baltimore, said it would construct a 15.9-megawatt thin-film solar power plant that will sit on 100 acres. The plant will be part of a $60 million energy facility that's run by Constellation in Emmitsburg, Md.

Maryland will purchase energy from the solar plant under a 20-year agreement, Constellation said.

Company stock fell 46 cents, or 1.4 percent, to $33.02 a share in Tuesday trading.
