GBB President Writes to Maryland Governor

Urges O’Malley to Recognize WTE as Clean, Renewable, Safe and Economical Source of Energy

After careful deliberation, on May 19, the Governor signed Senate Bill 690, reminding constituents that Maryland has an aggressive goal of generating 20% of its energy from Tier I renewable sources by 2022 and intends to achieve that goal through as much in-state energy generation as possible, including waste-to-energy.
