For over 190 years, Baltimore Gas & Electric (BGE)
has been meeting the energy needs of Central Maryland. BGE serves
more than one million business and residential electric customers
and more than 600,000 gas customers in an economically diverse,
2,300-square-mile area encompassing Baltimore City and all or part
of 10 Central Maryland counties.
Today, we are building on this proud tradition to create a promising
future for our employees and our customers. On May 3, 1999, Constellation
Energy began operations as the holding company for BGE and its affiliates.
July 1, 2000, BGE moved from being a vertically integrated
utility that both produces and delivers electricity to one that
delivers electricity produced by others.
We will safely, economically, reliably, and profitably deliver gas
and electricity to our customers.
We will be a recognized leader in energy delivery by enhancing our
customers' quality of life, our shareholders' value, and our team's
