Crane said a Maryland Energy Administration proposal on how the merged company should meet renewable energy standards is unworkable and would be very costly to Exelon and Maryland’s residential customers and should not be adopted as a merger condition. Crane and Baltimore Gas and Electric President and CEO Kenneth DeFontes
Jr. also filed testimony assuring the PSC that BGE would remain responsive to its customers and state regulators.
