    • Electric & Gas
    • Power Plants – Fossil Fuels & Renewable such as solar, wind & offshore wind
    • Water
    • Telecommunications
    • Transportation
    • Energy Efficiency

    Advocates For Our Clients to Achieve Positive Results

    We use our relationships with the Commission and other state agencies such as the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA), Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), Power Plant Research Program (PPRP), and the Office of People’s Counsel (OPC) to collaborate and advocate for our clients to achieve positive results.

    Representing Numerous Clients & Delivering Success

    Our attorneys routinely represent power plant developers in obtaining the required permits necessary to construct their projects, including a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) from the PSC, and local permits from various counties throughout Maryland. We also represent numerous clients – developers, trade associations, counties – in rate cases against the incumbent utilities – including BGE, Pepco, and Washington Gas. Our clients trust us to obtain successful results in utility mergers, EmPOWER Maryland energy efficiency proceedings, complaints against utilities, licensing and applications, and contract preparation and review, among many others. And since we are seasoned litigators, we are not afraid to appeal an adverse decision by the PSC to the Circuit Court, or assist in the defense of a favorable order if other interested parties appeal. The Law Office of Robert Castro has skilled and experienced Maryland PSC Lawyers to fight for you!
