A few weeks before your installation, you will receive a postcard informing you of when your new meter will be installed. If your meter is inside your home, BGE will provide you with instructions on scheduling an appointment. BGE is working with two installation vendors, Grid One Solutions and Corix Utilities, to install meters in our service territory.
If you are unsure which vendor is installing meters in your area, please call BGE at 855.470.8800. Please note we may not be installing smart meters in your specific neighborhood at the time you call. If so, you will be scheduled for installation for a date in the near future.
After your smart meter is installed, you will receive an information packet notifying you that you have access to BGE Smart Energy Manager
, which provides you with the tools necessary to better understand how you use your energy, and how to better save energy and reduce your bills.
If you do not wish to have a smart meter installed, you must pay related fees of choosing an alternative meter option. Learn more
