BGE SEED Program

BGE SEED logo
The SEED Program will allow qualifying businesses to invest more of their resources in their own operations by reducing BGE’s charges for service extensions and temporarily decreasing energy distribution charges. These reductions can help businesses grow, expand, hire and ultimately contribute to a stronger economy. Click here to learn more.
