It is all about money. Years ago, Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. under Constellation Energy Group cut their field workforce to as few humans as possible and then subcontracted much of their field work to electrical contractors.

Any county government executive complaining to the legislature might as well be talking to the wall. The utilities have their lobbyist who with campaign contributions have no fear of any legislative action. BGE/Constellation top management are only interested in how big their payday is going to be when the merger takes place with Exelon Corp.
