An Unlikely Energy Leader: Maryland Makes A Splash
From AOL Energy
When Americans think about the states that lead in energy, they conjure up Texas, California, perhaps Alaska or West Virginia and – with fracking – now Pennsylvania and Ohio. Maryland isn”t an obvious choice.
ut Maryland lies directly in the middle of one of the largest markets for energy in the world – the Northeastern US. A tradition of organizing to protect the Chesapeake Bay has raised consciousness about energy choices and created prolific community organizations advocating green energy, while a strong agricultural community and access to an international port make Maryland a surprise entry as a leader in energy politics and business.
