COVID-19 Notice

 At BGE, safety is our top priority. That’s why we’re closely monitoring developments related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and taking appropriate precautions to protect the health and safety of our customers, contractors and employees. At this time, BGE has temporarily modified or suspended several of our energy efficiency programs, including those that involve in-person visits to Maryland businesses. In accordance with the statewide stay-at-home directive, BGE discourages participating contractors and Service Providers from entering business locations. Existing work for essential businesses may continue only with the prior consent of the customer and while following the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) recommended precautions. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please check back soon for updates.


 Check out our list of federal, state and local COVID-19 resources for information on everything from health and safety guidelines to loans and tax credits for residents and businesses.

Technical Services

Want to save energy but not sure where to start? Our technical services help you identify and evaluate energy-saving opportunities for your business’s unique circumstances. Technical services are available on a limited basis for the following types of projects:

  • New Construction
  • Major Renovations
  • Equipment Replacement
  • Efficiency Upgrades to Existing Equipment and Processes

Take advantage of co-funding of up to 50% of the cost of approved engineering studies and up to 75% of the cost of commissioning complex custom measures, with a cap of $20,000 per project.

How It Works

For existing facilities, a BGE-approved architectural/engineering firm will visit your facility and help you either identify new energy-saving opportunities or analyze previously identified opportunities.

For new construction or major renovation projects, a Service Provider will support your design team to evaluate multiple energy efficiency options.

Note that Technical Services are required if you wish to take advantage of incentives for Comprehensive Systems for existing buildings and the Comprehensive Design track for new construction projects.
