Baltimore utility companies & energy providers

A utility company is a company that delivers electricity to your home. The utility company also installs and maintains the infrastructure. Baltimore Gas and Electric (BG&E) is the utility company that serves Baltimore residents. To report an outage or infrastructure damage, contact BG&E at 1-800-685-0123 for customer service or 1/877-778-2222 if you spot a downed power line. In Maryland, utility companies also are electric suppliers, but customers don’t have to buy from them and often find better prices elsewhere.
