FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Baltimore Gas and Electric Company Supports the
Maryland Teacher of the Year Program and Partnership Fund
BALTIMORE, Nov. 12, 2012 – Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BGE) <http://www.bge.com/Pages/
As a part of its commitment to building strong communities in central Maryland, BGE strongly supports educational initiatives like the Maryland Teacher of the Year Program and Partnership Fund. Since its founding nearly 200 years ago, BGE has played an integral role in working with Maryland communities to address economic development, public safety, civic issues and other initiatives that help enhance our neighborhoods. Through the use of shareholder dollars, BGE supports programs that deliver measurable and sustainable impact in areas of energy efficiency and assistance, the environment, economic and community development, emergency response and safety, and education.
BGE’s corporate citizenship aligns with that of its parent company, Exelon Corporation. As part of Exelon’s merger in March 2012, Exelon and its subsidiaries have committed to maintain charitable giving of an average of $7 million per year in Maryland, including BGE’s service area, for the next 10 years. BGE’s sponsorship of the Maryland State Department of Education’s Maryland Teacher of the Year Program and Partnership Fund fulfills part of that commitment.
