Calvert County recognizes that alternative energy sources are important to increase America's energy security and to provide reliable domestic energy supply. As home to Maryland's only nuclear power plant - the first nuclear power plant in the nation to achieve relicensing - and one of the nation's largest liquid natural gas import facilities, we know the importance of their presence from both a local and national perspective.
Exelon's Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant and the Dominion Cove Point LNG terminal together employ over 1,000 people, contribute to a wide range of community charities and infuse millions of dollars in tax revenue annually that funds services such as education, school construction, road projects, law enforcement, and fire/rescue services. Given our history with these entities, we are comfortable with their presence in our community, appreciate the financial contribution to our economy and, most importantly, trust their commitment to safety and environmental stewardship.
Calvert County is uniquely positioned to play a pivotal role in meeting our nation's energy demands and facilitating the development of new energy solutions. We stand ready to share in our nation’s responsibility to provide resources that produce energy to minimize the impact to our global environment.
