We understand that a power outage can make this already challenging time even more difficult. When adverse weather affects our service area, BGE is prepared. If you experience a power outage or need to report a downed wire, please call 877.778.2222. BGE crews are following CDC guidance for social distancing and personal protection while working as safely and quickly as possible to restore power. BGE asks all customers, including those with smart meters, to report their outage. Outages may also be reported online, by texting OUT to MYBGE (69243), and via BGE’s free mobile app available today at the Apple Store or GooglePlay. BGE crews work as safely and quickly as possible to restore power.
Customers are increasingly supplementing BGE energy with self-generated power. Interconnection is the process of registering and connecting power generation equipment, such as solar energy systems, to BGE's electric distribution system.
Every solar project goes through a similar step-by-step process. Here are the primary steps that you will experience if you choose to go solar.
