Why Is Baltimore Responsible For Mountaintop Removal

Do Something About Mountaintop Removal, With The Click Of A Mouse

In their 2003 Annual Report, Baltimore-based Constellation Energy states,  “The primary source of coal we use is produced from mines located in central and northern Appalachia.” So, if you are a BGE (Constellation’s Maryland Utility) customer and you have never made changes to your BGE plan, YOU are responsible for mountaintop removal.

Here is something you can do right now from your computer to make a difference:

Switch your BGE electricity supply source to wind power. You may be unaware that you have an energy choice in Baltimore. Switching to a wind energy source is as easy as the click of the mouse.  When you switch to a wind energy source, your bill will still come from BGE, as they are still your energy provider, but the company that produces the energy will be different and listed as such on your bill.  There will be no interruption in your service and the change is otherwise seamless.  Currently wind power is cheaper than your regular BGE rate, so you will save money too.  CLICK HERE to make the switch.

Make a difference in just a few minutes and then please pass this on.
