About Nuclear Powers Maryland

Maryland stands at a crossroads. As the threat of climate change becomes more urgent, a statewide transition to clean energy must be a top priority for our state decision-makers. Nuclear Powers Maryland is a statewide coalition of like-minded organizations who believe Maryland has an opportunity to become a national clean energy leader by embracing the benefits of carbon-free nuclear power. As Maryland’s largest source of carbon-free power, nuclear energy is the state’s most important tool for enabling cities, communities, and businesses to reduce emissions and prevent harmful pollutants being emitted into the air we breathe, while maintaining access to affordable, reliable electric power. By 2030, Maryland can reach 70% clean energy with nuclear in operation. Without nuclear, Maryland could only reach 50% clean energy by then.
