November 2019 planting in partnership with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay in Franklin County, PA

Partners in Stewardship

Proudly supporting local conservation efforts and using industry best practices that protect and preserve the environment.

In November 2018, Transource announced a $25,000 commitment in support of local conservation efforts to improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay watershed in Pennsylvania and Maryland through funds and volunteer efforts. (Learn more about the partnership here.)

To date, company volunteers and partners have planted more than 900 trees in Franklin and York counties, installing riparian buffers to protect the watershed and support local conservation efforts.

In November 2018, Transource volunteers and partners kicked off the partnership by planting 600 trees to install a riparian buffer along the East Branch of Codorus Creek at Spring Valley Park in York County, PA.

Transource is focused on the development of state-of-the-art facilities and incorporates best practices in environmental stewardship by proactively implementing processes that reduce potential impacts associated with the construction and maintenance of necessary transmission facilities.

In 2017, Transource hosted 10 open houses and met with local groups to gather input on hundreds of miles of route options for the proposed Independence Energy Connection project. That feedback was incorporated into the siting process.

During that process, Transource gained a greater understanding of local wildlife, environmentally sensitive areas and the important role streams play locally for community recreation, as well as their contribution to the ecosystem as part of the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

We are committed to being a partner in the communities where we operate and strive to balance the need for energy infrastructure with respect for the landowner, land use and the environment and we are proud to support these local efforts in conservation.
