BGE Activates Peak Load Management For Heat Wave

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Gas and Electric Company says it has activated its peak load management program during the heat wave.

The program means customers enrolled in it will have their central air conditioning units and water heaters cycled.

About 450,000 customers take part in the program. BGE expects to have enough power to meet customer demand.

The utility is still advising all customers to conserve energy when possible.
