In June 2015, PSEG acquired a 180-acre site, which was previously used for a sand and gravel mining operation. PSEG is committed to providing Maryland and the region with reliable and environmentally responsible energy, and the site needed to be constructed while complying with all environmental permits. It is also important to PSEG that the site continues to stay in compliance now that it is up and running.
HOW WE HELPED
McCormick Taylor provided onsite support for the environmental permitting and compliance staff during the construction of the Natural Gas Generating Facility and associated linear facilities at the PSEG Keys Energy Center and continues to provide support now that the plant is operational. Our responsibilities have included coordinating and reviewing EPCRA Tier II chemical inventories, coordinating local permitting requirements for Prince George’s and Charles Counties, coordinating and reviewing operational permits, and assisting in project-specific corporate environmental, health, and safety audits and site assessments. We also provided independent environmental monitoring services during construction of the offsite natural gas pipeline and during the construction of the facility, as well as coordinated and scoped aspects of the Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) required Buffer Enhancement Plan.
In July 2018, the PSEG Keys Energy Center was commissioned and began furnishing electricity. It is now generating capacity to power over 700,000 homes in Prince George’s and surrounding counties. Because of McCormick Taylor, PSEG was able to complete and continue to operate its project efficiently and with respect to the environment.
