I, on the other hand, disagree with Galuszka. Galuszka points out that Maryland recently spent $1.7 billion on offshore wind development (Galuszka, 2013, ph. 10). This investment will bring the state closer to its goal, which the Baltimore Sun reports is to increase the amount of energy provided to the state from renewable sources to 25% by 2020 (Browner, 2013, p. 5). Converting the plant and promoting the use of natural gas would push Maryland in the opposite direction than it wishes to go, turning the almost $2 billion investment into a pointless waste of money. Although the facility could bring in an estimated $59 million to the state government (Galuszka, 2013, ph.8), natural gas is a nonrenewable resource. With the entire country tending towards renewable energy sources, the plant could once again become useless in a matter of decades, if not years, proving this to be another waste of investments. I believe that if Maryland does wish to make its goal of running 25% of electricity off of renewable resources and promote a more sustainable future, it should not allow Cove Point to be converted into an export facility.
