The SEED Program will allow qualifying businesses to invest more of their resources in their own operations by reducing BGE’s charges for service extensions and temporarily decreasing energy distribution charges. It is our hope that these reductions will help businesses grow, expand, hire and ultimately contribute to a stronger economy.
BGE’s SEED Program offers eligible commercial customers:
25 percent reduction for five years
Approved enterprise zone based businesses can also receive a 75 percent discount on service extension costs
To apply for the SEED program, please take the following steps:
Note: You must login to a BGE.com account to complete the New Business and SEED applications. If you need to register for a BGE.com account, please visit our account registration page.
BGE's Economic Development team will review your SEED application in parallel to our New Business team engineering and designing your new or modified service.
For more information, please use the Contact Us page or email BGE’s Economic Development Team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maryland's Enterprise Zone (EZ) program provides real property and state income tax credits for businesses located in a Maryland enterprise zone in return for job creation and investments. Not every business located in an enterprise zone is eligible to receive MD state tax credits or SEED benefits. In order to qualify, the business must be certified by the local enterprise zone administrators as eligible for benefits.
