BALTIMORE (Nov. 21, 2018) – Black Friday means big savings for BGE customers shopping for ecobee or Nest® smart thermostats.

"Black Friday is the perfect opportunity for our customers to see the benefits of shopping at BGE Marketplace.

BGE Marketplace offers energy-efficiency products that can save customers time and money, such as LED lightbulbs, smart thermostats, and advanced power strips. The online store also allows customers to receive instant, point-of-purchase rebates involving no paperwork, no wait, and no hassle - just a simple validation process that determines rebate eligibility at the same time a customer adds products to his or her cart.

In addition to BGE Marketplace, BGE is now offering instant rebates at select Home Depot retail stores on energy-efficient smart thermostats and will soon extend this program to all Home Depot and Lowes stores in BGE's territory and online.
