About the PSEG KEys Energy Center

The PSEG Keys Energy Center, owned by PSEG Fossil, a subsidiary of PSEG Power, began construction in 2015 of a new clean, natural gas-fired, power plant in Prince George’s County, Maryland and is targeted to be in operation in 2018.

The PSEG Keys Energy Center project is being constructed on a 180+ acre parcel of land previously used for a sand and gravel mining operation. The site is located north of North Keys Road approximately 1.25 miles east of Brandywine, Maryland.
