High winds and heavy rain damaged electric equipment throughout central Maryland during back-to-back weather events in April 2020
BGE has restored electric service to more than 63,000 customers who lost power due to thunderstorms and high winds in multiple mid-April storms that impacted central Maryland.
Most of the outages were caused by trees and large tree limbs that fell onto power lines and other electric equipment. BGE increased staffing—including through virtual operations—and mobilized crews in advance of the storms.
“Electric service is vital, even more so now that everyone in the community is focused on maintaining health and safety during this COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate the support we’ve received as our crews worked quickly and safely to restore power under difficult conditions,” said BGE President and Chief Operating Officer Stephen J. Woerner.
