BGE Awards More Than $250K in Grants to 57 Organizations to Support Environmental Stewardship Projects

BALTIMORE, MD (April 22, 2022) – BGE has awarded 57 non-profit organizations grants totaling more than $250,000 to support environmental stewardship projects in the company's service area. Now in its ninth year, the annual BGE Green Grants program has benefitted hundreds of innovative community projects with more than $2 million in charitable giving from BGE.

"It is an honor to support and celebrate the vital work of these organizations that work passionately to improve the environment in our Maryland communities," said Alexander Núñez, senior vice president of governmental, regulatory and external affairs for BGE. "As we follow our Path to Clean toward achieving net zero operations-driven emissions by 2050, we remain committed to environmental stewardship and our opportunity to enhance our non-profit partners' success."

Grants range from $500 to $10,000. Organizations that received a Green Grant are located in BGE's geographic service area and will use their award for a project that falls into at least one of BGE's environmental focus areas: conservation, education, energy efficiency, pollution prevention, and community engagement. Prospective grant recipients must be 501(c)(3) non-profits with a board of directors and must meet additional criteria to be eligible.
