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

Our Commitment

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.

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 continue to empower our employees to develop new programs, pursue innovative technologies, and support the development of thoughtful clean energy policies.

E3 Consulting recently Completed an analysis that shows there are multiple pathways to reach the State of Maryland's decarbonization goals. BGE supports an approach that leverages the capabilities of an integrated energy system, comprised of gas and electric delivery infrastructure, to advance a reliable, affordable, and equitable clean energy future for our customers and communities. Read more here.
