When adverse weather affects our service area, BGE is prepared. If you experience a power outage or need to report a downed wire, please call 877.778.2222. BGE asks all customers, including those with smart meters, to report their outage. Outages may also be reported online, by texting OUT to MYBGE (69243), and via BGE's free mobile app available today at the Apple Store or GooglePlay. BGE crews work as safely and quickly as possible to restore power.
