Riverside Generating Station

Riverside Generating Station

Riverside Generating Station is owned and operated by Exelon Power. Riverside is a four unit, 228 megawatt (MW) fossil power plant located on Sollers Point on the Patapsco River in Dundalk, Maryland.

Two of the units at Riverside are fueled by oil, one of the units is fueled by natural gas and one unit can be fueled by either natural gas or fuel oil, depending on market conditions.  They are used as needed for peak demand periods. 

Riverside joined Exelon Power’s fleet in 2012 through Exelon’s merger with Constellation.

Emergency Planning

All Exelon facilities employ sophisticated emergency response plans to protect public health and safety. These plans are reviewed and approved by state governments and regulatory agencies. The emergency planning includes coordination with local counties, municipalities and school districts.

Supporting the Local Economy

Riverside pays local real estate taxes every year to support county and township government, area schools, libraries, park districts and other taxing bodies.
