Your energy service is divided into two parts; supply, the cost of the gas and/or electricity, and delivery, transportation of the energy.
Delivery is a regulated service which means that BGE will continue to deliver gas and/or electricity to all customers. This also means that BGE is responsible for the wires, poles and outage restoration regardless of supplier. Since BGE delivers to all of the central Maryland service area, its costs and policies are regulated by the Maryland Public Service Commission (PSC).
However, supply is not a regulated service. Energy suppliers that are licensed by the Maryland Public Service Commission and registered with BGE can become your supplier. This gives you the choice and allows you to shop for the best energy rates and terms—if you wish.
BGE has a list of approved suppliers so you can make an easy switch.
You can choose to purchase your gas or electricity supply from BGE at a price approved by the Maryland PSC.
