Baltimore Gas and Electric Company’s Smart Energy Savers Program® Helps St. Mary’s Annapolis Initiate Major Energy Savings Program

First phase of improvements will upgrade lighting at historic grammar school building and newer fine arts building

WHO: William J. Wolf – Manager, BGE Conservation Programs

WHAT: St. Mary’s Annapolis, one of BGE’s small business customers, is beginning a project to install energy efficiency measures that will significantly reduce energy usage and costs. The first phase of improvements is expected to save the school $3,300 in annual energy costs with just a one-time cost to St. Mary’s of approximately $2,000. The remaining cost – approximately $8,000 – is covered by incentives provided by BGE’s Small Business Lighting Solutions Program, a component of BGE’s Smart Energy Savers Program®. This program is available to all BGE customers with commercial “G” accounts – typically small business customers.

Incentives to reduce the costs of implementing energy efficient measures have exceeded 8 million dollars across this customer class. The St. Mary’s project is a prime example of the program’s benefits which also include helping the environment.
