BALTIMORE
(Sept. 11, 2013)
 – 
At the direction of the Mid-Atlantic regional grid operator, PJMInterconnection, Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BGE) will begin a PeakRewards emergency cycling event this afternoon. All customers who are voluntarily enrolled in the PeakRewards Air Conditioning program and the PeakRewards Electric Water Heater program will be cycled up to their chosen level of participation.For PeakRewards Air Conditioning program participants who have chosen to participate at the 50 percent level, compressors will be off for half the time they would normally run. For participants at the75 percent level, compressors will be off for three-quarters the time they would normally run. During theevent, customers who participate at the 100 percent level will have no air conditioning for the durationof the event, meaning no new cool air will be produced. Customers participating in the PeakRewardsElectric Water Heater program will also experience a 100 percent cycling of their water heaters,meaning their water will not be heated until the event ends. In most cases, water in the tank prior to program activation will remain warm.During the
cycling event, the word ―SAVINGS‖ should appear 
on PeakRewards thermostats inside
 participating customers’ homes or a red light should illuminate on the PeakRewards switch on or near 
the central air conditioning unit or water heater.BGE cannot predict the duration of this event, however, the company will continue to communicate withcustomers and keep them informed through notifications on bge.com, the PeakRewards Event CentralPage,and individual email notifications.When the cycling event ends, BGE will transition all air conditioning program customers to a lower cycling level to maintain system reliability. Customers will not be able to override cycling during thisemergency event. However, customers who have a medical or health condition or require assistanceshould call the PeakRewards customer hotline at 888.309.PEAK (7325).While customers receive bill credits for their participation in the PeakRewards program, BGEunderstands that the cycling may cause some inconvenience or discomfort. BGE recommends customersconsider the following tips for staying comfortable during the PeakRewards activation:Stay hydrated
