Online-donation option available, Fuel Fund of Md. says

The Fuel Fund of Maryland said BGE customers will now be able to donate money online to help residents who can't afford their energy bills.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., which sends out Fuel Fund envelopes with its bills in December and January, will now also offer a "virtual envelope" for customers who pay their energy bills online.

The Fuel Fund said fundraising has been slow this year. As a result, the funds it has put toward low-income residents' energy bills have dropped 25 percent compared with last year. The nonprofit is hoping for an uptick as temperatures fall.
