“Having access to safe and reliable energy is not something that the residents of central Maryland should have to worry about at this time,” said Carim Khouzami, CEO of BGE. “Any customer can contact us to ensure they have the service they need, to make more flexible payment arrangements or be connected with energy assistance resources if they encounter financial difficulties. The key is to reach out for assistance so that we can find the solution that is right for each customer.”
