Prepaid Pilot Enrollment Closed

Thanks for your interest in BGE’s Prepaid Power program. Unfortunately new enrollment requests for this pilot program are longer being accepted. BGE hopes to offer this service in the future.

Additional Bill Payment Options

The power is yours.

Pre-Paid Logo

BGE’s Prepaid Power pilot program is a one-year program that puts you in control of when you pay for your gas and electricity. Instead of monthly bills, you pay as you go by adding to your account—at your convenience. As you use energy, your balance is reduced and BGE reminds you when your balance is low. It’s that simple.

This flexibility allows you to better manage your budget and energy usage. You can make smaller payments over time that better fit your schedule and budget. It also allows you to pay off any existing past-due balance (up to $600) over time while keeping the power on.

When you participate in Prepaid Power:

  • NO more end-of-the-month bill surprises
  • NO new deposit requirements
  • NO new credit checks
  • NO late payment or reconnection fees
