- Demand for energy is rising in ODEC-served regions. Over the past decade, ODEC saw a 26% increase in electricity sales and expects additional growth in the future. Further, many power plants in the region are approaching retirement, meaning new sources of electricity are needed to ensure reliable access to power in the future.
- Wildcat Point will increase ODEC’s supply of owned power generation assets and lower ODEC’s and Maryland’s reliance on costlier, imported energy.
- Wildcat Point will directly benefit cooperative members on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. ODEC member Choptank Electric Cooperative serves approximately 52,000 residents across the Eastern Shore, including 3,000 in Cecil County.
