BGE’s new economic development incentive for qualifying businesses is working to help Maryland’s economy grow! As Maryland works to attract and grow businesses, BGE is ready to support the State’s efforts. We understand that a vibrant economy is the foundation for our state’s high quality of life. By providing programs, services and incentives that encourage business growth and expansion in our service territory, BGE strives to help Maryland maximize its economic potential.
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:
To apply for the SEED program, please take the following steps

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.
If your business is new or entering a period of expansion, we invite you to explore how we can help you succeed. Download Brochure
