Mattawoman Project

Panda Power Funds (“Panda”) has proposed to build a new power generation facility – the Mattawoman Energy Center facility in Prince George’s County to safely provide the people of Maryland with the next generation of clean, reliable, and efficient electric power.

Southern Maryland is experiencing tremendous growth and the citizens of Maryland deserve an efficient and reliable source of electricity to power that growth. Due to a lack of existing power capacity, Maryland currently imports approximately 40% of its power needs from out of state, causing severe transmission constraint issues. This project will help provide Maryland with locally-sourced power.

Like the increasing traffic growth currently seen on U.S. Route 301 in Southern Maryland, peak electricity demand in the area served by the Mattawoman Energy Center is expected to grow over 1.4 percent per year - or approximately 2,200 MW per year.

Once operational, the Mattawoman Energy Center will be capable of generating 990 MW of electricity per year. That’s enough electricity to provide power to more than 990,000 Maryland homes per year.

Energy efficiency alone will not be sufficient to meet growing demand - additional sources of capacity, like the Mattawoman Energy Center, are also needed to ensure Maryland has the power it needs. The citizens of Prince George’s County, neighboring communities and the State of Maryland deserve an efficient and reliable source of electricity to power their homes, businesses and lives.
