responsible for reading the customer's meter. In the event an
actual meter reading cannot be obtained, BGE shall estimate the
customer's consumption for billing purposes for the applicable
period in accordance with the BGE Retail Electric Service Tariff and
with PSC regulations. BGE will normally provide the gas or electricity
supplier with actual or estimated meter read data within 72 hours of
the Meter Read Date via Commission approved standards.
For informational purposes, BGE will perform an off-cycle
meter read for a fee in accordance with Schedule 1 of the BGE Electricity Supplier Coordination Tariff. However, this meter read is for
informational purposes only and will not impact the meters' regular
bill schedule or a customer's switch.
The following occurrences may result in delays or changes
to meter read dates and/or the conveyance of meter information.

account is terminated, the meter read date may be adjusted. In such
cases, the meter read data will normally be sent within 72 hours of
