About Baltimore Gas and Electric Company

Baltimore Gas and Electric is the largest natural gas and electric utility in Maryland. They started over 200 years ago in 1816 and has since become a part of the Exelon Corporation. BG&E operates across over 2,300 square miles with 1.3 million electric customers and 680,000 gas customers. With over 3,200 employees, BG&E operates across 26,600 miles of power lines and has 244 substations for delivering energy.

The Difference Between Utilities and Suppliers

Maryland has a deregulated energy market that means there are two different groups in your energy supply — utilities and suppliers. Utilities, like BG&E, deliver the power to you and also maintain power lines and respond to outages. They take the power from the suppliers and get it to your home or business, and they operate in a set service area.

In a deregulated market, energy supply costs are set by the supplier. As a consumer, you get to choose the supplier your utility works with, affecting the rate you pay. With energy rates changing all the time, signing up with a new supplier rate can help you stay on top of your budget.

Utilities in the state provide a Price to Compare (PTC) on energy bills. To view current price to compare rates with BG&E, click here.
