Environmental information for SMECO’s Standard
Offer Service

The following environmental information is for Standard Offer Service. The data are published at the request of the Maryland Public Service Commission. The data are based on a combination of 2023 regional averages and SMECO’s Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) in place. Since the data include PJM Interconnection (the regional transmission organization) wholesale market averages, the SMECO-specific emissions data may vary from these averages.
