Our Path to Clean


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, reliable, and affordable energy for all of our customers in central Maryland.

Our Commitment

BGE is committed to seeing this Path to Clean through on behalf of our customers and community because we are part of it – we live here, work here, and have deep roots in Maryland. We will:

Cut our own operational emissions by at least 50% by 2030

We will achieve net-zero operations-driven emissions by 2050

while continuing to support our customers in reaching their clean energy goals without sacrificing reliable, safe and affordable energy solutions.

Our Roadmap 

BGE will pursue the Path to Clean by supporting our customers and communities with personalized energy solutions that help them reduce emissions. We will also empower our employees to develop new programs, pursue innovative technologies, and support the development of thoughtful clean energy policies.


The Path to Clean focuses on three impact areas
