Loaves & Fishes feeds the Carrollton community
It’s important to the Carrollton community that everyone — young or old, alone or with family— should have the opportunity to go to bed with a full stomach.

Pastor Gordon Warner, a minister at a local church, lends his administrative skills to the local food pantry, Loaves & Fishes. He expressed his gratitude that Carroll County Energy chooses to donate locally rather than to a larger organization. “Circumstances don’t always allow direct appropriation of funds from larger corporations to local programs,” Pastor Warner said. “This way, we know the donations will make it to Carrollton people in need.”

Also a fan, Bechtel orders 20 sandwiches daily when their staff is onsite, which “on a slow day can make all the difference,” said Donna.

Carroll County Energy Plant First of Three in Region
Were it a year ago, the vantage point where Michael Murphy stands would be a panoramic view of a lush soybean field nestled into the quiet heart of Carroll County.

Today, as Murphy surveys the view from atop a hillside just off state Route 9, that soybean field is long gone. In its place is a giant worksite filled with more than 200 tradesmen clad in fluorescent green vests, scores of earth-moving equipment, mountains of dirt and gravel, and the foundation of what by the fall of 2017 will be an $899 million electricity generation plant.
