If you already have a smart meter installed, later this year you will receive an invitation in the mail to login to bge.com and view your detailed energy use through our BGE Smart Energy Manager suite of online tools. BGE Smart Energy Manager features are not immediately available after your smart meter is installed. In order to provide you with the most accurate information possible, your meter automatically goes through a certification process. Through this process, the smart meter relays your energy use to BGE and ensures proper connectivity to the smart grid network.
Once you have access to the BGE Smart Energy Manager features, you will be able to set a target budget every month and track how you are doing toward that budget on a daily basis, well before your energy bill arrives. You will also see how much energy you use compared to average households that are similar to yours. This online tool will also show the pattern of how and when you use the most electricity and personalized cost-saving tips based on your very own usage data. You will also have the option to receive a print home energy reports with detailed information about your energy use. By making use of the new BGE Smart Energy Manager, you can reduce your monthly bill! If you do not currently have a bge.com online account, sign up here
