The statement “We’re on it.” definably declares Baltimore Gas and Electric, or BGE’s, goal and commitment to its customers of central Maryland. Serving in central Maryland for close to 200 years now, BGE has stated its mission is to provide safe, economical, reliable, and profitable energy utilities to its 1.2 million customers. BGE services are located in a 2,300 square mile area of central Maryland which includes the 9 counties listed below:

- Prince George County
BGE, like most electricity providers, carries a large number of residential customers with 1.1 million residential customers but also carries a substantial number of commercial customers at 122,100.
BGE’s history shows that BGE’s declaration of “We’re on it.” has been true for almost 200 years. BGE can trace its roots back as the first ever “utility” company in the world. Founded in 1816, BGE has continuously followed the line of innovation throughout the decades. In 1999 BGE made the most recent changes as it became part of Constellation Energy Group. This change will allow BGE to compete with other electricity suppliers nationwide. One of the first steps towards this brighter future took place right away in 2000 as BGE went from producing and delivering electricity to just delivering electricity. No longer working with the power plants, Constellation Energy Group transferred the plants to other affiliates.
While providing service in an economically diverse area in central Maryland, BGE looks to accommodate customers from all walks of life. On their website you can see many customer friendly articles and services including tips to save energy and cost, a library of material that explains BGE services better, and a fund you can donate to that helps those who don’t have electricity. Customer service and bill pay options are made available online.
