BGE is committed to helping our customers understand the importance of natural gas safety. Gas is colorless, tasteless, and odorless in its natural state. Therefore, BGE puts mercaptan, a safety additive in natural gas to give it a rotten egg odor and make it easier to detect.
If you smell gas inside or outside, leave the area immediately and call 911 or BGE. Emergency gas service calls are answered 24/7. A service person will respond quickly, free of charge.
Remember, don’t use matches, or turn anything on, even a cell phone. Even buildings that don’t use gas can experience gas leaks from outdoors.
A Gas Production Day (GPD) is a gas day when BGE anticipates engaging in peak shaving activities. Peak shaving is an activity where BGE manages increased demand for natural gas by utilizing our Liquefied Natural Gas (LNB) or propane facilities to inject more gas into our distribution system.
GPD activities affect all customers on the Daily Metered program (Rate Schedule C-Non-Standby and interruptible
Schedules IS and ISS). You can still use the natural gas that your supplier is going to deliver to BGE, but we recommend that you inform your supplier of any anticipated gas usage increases to avoid significant gas imbalances and penalties.
Customers are contacted via automated phone call, fax and email regarding GPDs.
A Gas Distribution System Interruption (GDSI) is an interruption of all or a portion of Schedule IS (Interruptible Large Volume Service) and Schedule ISS (Interruptible Small Volume Service) customers due to gas distribution system operational constraints.
The interruption may be a result of weather-related and/or gas distribution system operational conditions that could adversely impact BGE’s ability to serve its Firm Service customers. Rate Schedule IS and ISS customers that contracted for Optional Firm Service Delivery Service (OFDS) can use up to the specified volume.
Customers are contacted via fax, email and automated phone call, and will receive a personal call from their BGE Account Representative regarding the GDSI.
