The New BGE Payment Plan

| April 08, 2009, 12:23 PM | 6 Comments


BGE Customers Still Have Reprieve. No Firm Answer From Utility.

BGE and the PSC clashed yesterday as they tried to hash out what to do with 208,000 customers who are late on their electric payment. It appeared that the PSC was not too happy with the BGE proposal and sent them back to the drawing board to fine tune the proposal.

BGE proposed that all arrearages be repaid in full before the next heating season allowing 9 months of no interest payments. However, they will require 25%, 50% or 75% of the past due amount to be paid up front. PSC Chairman Doug Nazarian questioned how this plan was any different that a normal payment plan available at any time and called this a “shell game” being played by BGE.

While no specific date came from the meeting, turn-offs are still suspended and BGE should be in touch with past due customers to make payment arrangements prior to any turn-off.

  • 208,000 BGE customers have outstanding balances ranging from two days to several months
  • 84,000 BGE customers are in danger of getting a termination notice

    Got my bill today and it was $595 and some change. For an 1800 SF, well insulated, almost brand new home. How does that compute?

    Sorry to hear that! I have a 2100 SQft, 39yr old home in SP and my bill hovers around $220-$320 even with the rate increase. Anyway, I see this helps those that have fallen behind, but provides no relief for those that bite the bullet and pay these obscene rates. Wait until Obama’s ‘cap and trade’ energy proposal comes down the pike…you think you pay alot now…just wait.

    I received my bill today and it was $375 about the same as last month. I live in a very, very small mobile home and have been cutting back alot. I can’t afford these rates. I’ll be calling Comcast tomorrow to get rid of my cable t.v. but will keep internet service. Food prices are also up so I’m cutting back on shopping. It’s getting ridiculous and I can’t see how anyone can blame the current economic situation on anyone else but the Bush Admin. and the Republican majority in Congress whose policies brought us down this road. Of course their corporate megaphone ie. FOX and talk radio works hard to get you to believe otherwise. Wake up people!
