WHAT: As part of the inaugural issue of Maryland Life Magazine’s new m.y. voice, student reporters from Severna Park Middle School will interview BGE’s John Murach, director of business planning and corporate performance, on the utility’s electric vehicle fleet and check out BGE’s plug-in electric cars, the Prius and the brand new Volt.
WHEN: Thursday, Oct. 20, 2011
WHERE: Severna Park Middle School
450 Jumpers Hole Road

WHY: BGE believes plug-in electric vehicles offer significant opportunities for our customers, especially in fuel cost savings and reducing vehicle tailpipe emissions. BGE’s plug-in vehicle provides a learning opportunity for BGE and our customers to learn about the vehicles and what our customers will need to know about them. BGE believes showcasing its plug-in electric vehicles helps support that commitment to learning and also encourages students to be good environmental stewards as well. BGE currently has a number of hybrid passenger vehicles and a hybrid bucket truck in addition to the plug-in vehicles in its fleet. The utility is testing these vehicles in everyday use to see how the company too can reduce its use of petroleum- based fuels and contribute to a clean environment.
