A company called Genesis (GenPower) recently met with the Brandywine North Keys Civic Association over plans to build a brand new natural gas power plant in Brandywine, MD off of North Keys Road in a largely residential area.

If built, the new power plant (dubbed the "Keys Power Plant") may shortly be the 3rd natural gas power plant pumping emissions into the Brandywine/Waldorf region's air!

The existing natural gas power plant sits in Brandywine behind Regency Furniture and the 7-Eleven at the corner of Rt 301 and Cheltenham Road and is named the "Panda" plant. In April 2012, Maryland energy regulators approved a new natural gas power plant in Charles County on Billingsley Road next to the county landfill.(It is assumed that this Waldorf plant will be built shortly).

Concerned citizens from PG and Charles counties can learn more about the citizen-sponsored efforts to raise awareness and to try and stop the Brandywine plant from being built by visiting/liking the Facebook site or electronically signing the petition at Change.org :
