BGE is leading Maryland to a clean and sustainable future. This is the right thing to do to help limit extreme weather and climate change. We are also building on our history of environmental commitments by creating a cleaner, smarter, and more reliable energy system that reduces emissions and helps maintain a strong foundation of safe, and affordable energy for all our customers in central Maryland.
BGE is on a Path to Clean to cut our own operational emissions by at least 50% by 2030 and to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, as part of our parent-company Exelon’s net zero commitment and in support of the state of Maryland’s decarbonization goals.
