Those who live in central Maryland have as an energy distributor. There's a good chance that you experienced a power outage, or disruption of your internet or cable service due a power disruption in the not too distant past.

This article provides a brief description of the steps to take to check on BGE power outages in a specific area and the ways in which DoNotPay can help.

How To Check For A BGE Power Outage

Consumers tend to take for granted the abundance of electricity in their everyday lives. Electricity comes through the power grid and that power grid can go down. When the power grid fails, consumers can lose phone, internet, and electrical service.

For businesses or residences in BGE's service area who believe they are in the midst of a power outage, simply follow these steps to determine the power outages in the service area:

Check BGE’s Website
  • Go to BGE's website. Log on to the appropriate BGE account.
  • The account should pull up the information on whether there is an outage in the area.
  • From there, navigate to the outages section.
  • Open the feature called the outage tracker.
  • Report an outage or check the status of current outages.
Via Is The Service DownIf a BGE internet outage occurs and you cannot reach the site, navigate to Istheservicedown. Here you will find an extensive list of all the phone and internet providers that the site tracks for outages.
  • Select the appropriate provider from the list.
  • See the updated information regarding the carrier's disruption issues for Wi-Fi, internet, phone, TV, blackouts, etc.
  • Navigate to the street maps or the full outage map.
  • Report an outage on this site.

These steps may seem easy, but the work does not stop there. Power outages also absorb critical staff time needed to determine the extent of property damage, potential bodily injuries, and the dollar amount that it will take to fix the issues the power outage caused.

Conducting research without professional help takes precious time away from staff already assigned to other duties. Clearing up the aftermath frustrates everyone especially when done without professional help. DoNotPay solves the research issues for consumers and avoids the high cost of professional assistance.

Can I Demand Compensation from BGE for an Outage?

A rise in expenses often occurs as the result of a power outage. Examples of expenses that businesses and residents encounter include, but are not limited to:

  • Loss of income from not being able to work,
  • Business losses due to computer downtime, including delayed production,
  • Broken appliances and equipment,
  • Spoiled food in the fridge,
  • Spoiled inventory, and
  • Medical expenses due to bodily injuries.

The power supplier may also suffer damage to the electrical grid. In many cases, you can file a claims report and seek compensation for the losses an outage caused. To file a claim, you may download and fill out BGE’s claims form. It should be noted that Baltimore Gas and Electric Company does not take responsibility for factors that are beyond its control.
