Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker recently visited the PSEG Keys Energy Center and spoke to the 2017 graduates of the Keys Energy Program.

During the visit, County Executive Baker learned about the program and spoke with students about taking advantage of the opportunity to have a potential career in the energy industry. He also talked with students about how the program could serve as a career pathway to a variety of high paying jobs.

The PSEG Energy Career Program is a free program that educates and train students for careers in the power production industry. PSEG has partnered with Prince George’s County Public Schools to offer this innovative educational experience for recent graduates of the county’s school system.

Students receive a paid internship for the program and possibility for employment at Keys Energy Center or other PSEG facilities upon successful completion of both phases of the program.
