Maryland’s energy level is at an all-time high when it comes to focusing on growing the economy. And as a partner in this effort, BGE works to support business attraction, retention and growth.
One of the first concerns that business owners have when choosing a location for their business is the cost of energy. Our
Smart Energy Economic Development (SEEDSM) program helps them save money by reducing energy and construction costs for qualifying new and expanding businesses in central Maryland – helping them create jobs and invest while invest more in their operations. So far more than a dozen approved businesses are participating in the program creating roughly 1,100 potential jobs.
Another way we help support business is through energy efficiency and conservation programs. Through our Smart Energy Savers program, businesses are able to manage energy costs through rebates on qualifying energy efficient equipment purchases, which also contributes to lower energy consumption. Since the program’s inception in 2008, business customers have saved more than $10M.
We are committed to working with our economic development partners to make sure businesses take advantage of our programs. We recently hosted our
Energizing Business Growth Breakfast where we highlighted our programs and shared ways in which we can help our customers find business success. It’s through these venues, our partnerships, and programs that BGE works to help strengthen the business community. If you’re an owner or operator and you’re interested in learning how we might help your business, I invite you to
explore our programs or
contact us. Wishing your business much success.
