BGE offers incentives for combined heat and power projects

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. said it is offering new incentives for nonresidential electric customers' "combined heat and power" projects — up to $2 million apiece.

Combined heat and power systems use waste heat from hot exhaust gases for space heating and other purposes, BGE said. Customers planning to install such a system could be eligible for the utility's new Combined Heat and Power Program incentives, available first come, first served. Proposals must be submitted by Dec. 21.

BGE is holding a webinar about the incentive at 10 a.m. Thursday. Information:

  • Can we trust BGE enough to approve higher rates?

    In editorial "Cost vs. reliability" (July 30) you speculate that granting BG&E a rate increase "might be worth it" if it results in infrastructure improvements that lead to more reliable service. That implies several uncertainties. First, can we be certain that substantially all of the funds from...

    Our view: BGE's request for higher electric and gas rates comes at a time when the state is primed for a conversation about how much it needs to invest in the power grid
