Budget Billing lets you spread out your BGE bills evenly throughout the year at no additional cost. Budget billing is subject to periodic adjustments, which better reflect your actual usage. We will notify you prior to the change if your bill needs to be adjusted. Click for more information on Budget Billing.
BGE's paperless billing system allows you to receive and pay your bill online. As a paperless billing customer, you opt out of receiving a paper bill in the mail. Instead you will receive an e-mail notification each month allowing you to view and pay your bill online. After successfully registering and setting up your back account information with an online account, you will receive a confirmation message through e-mail. Once you receive this confirmation, your BGE account is ready to receive your authorized electronic payment.
Please note: Setting up a paperless billing account doesn't automatically withdraw money from your bank account each month to pay your bill. Just as you would choose when to mail your paper bill payment, you still control when to send your electronic payment to pay your bill.
Bill Extender Plan
You may be eligible for our Bill Extender Plan if you live on a fixed income, such as Social Security, Disability, V.A. benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Family Investment Program (FIP) or a pension. For qualified customers, this plan extends utility bill due dates to work with your benefits. For more information, or to sign up, call 800.685.0123 or Contact Us
Turning off gas and electric service because bills went unpaid is a last resort. To help you avoid any unnecessary disruptions in service, especially if you are ill, disabled or away from home, you can designate a responsible adult as a third party to receive a copy of any turn-off notices.
