Last month, two power plants in Curtis Bay received the preliminary approval from the Maryland Public Service Commission to shift from coal to oil.

We cannot guestimate this information. And that’s just it, we don’t have to guess. All Maryland departments should be thinking more broadly about how these changes affect our climate, our communities and our workforce.
