BGE in the News

BGE has recently made headlines for natural gas explosions in several of its service areas. Three BGE utility workers were hurt in 2021 after a natural gas line they were repairing sparked a large fireball in a Pikesville community. A 2020 explosion in a northwest Baltimore neighborhood  killed two people and wounded seven more after they were trapped beneath building debris. In 2019, dozens of businesses in Colombia were destroyed when a natural gas leak triggered a fire.

BGE was fined $437,000 by Maryland’s Public Service Commission in 2019 for safety violations in relation to the Colombia blaze. In response, the company stated that it would remit the fine and begin a system wide equipment upgrade to be completed by 2023.
