Today, online payment is the fastest and most convenient way of paying your bills. To pay your BGE bill online, visit their official site bge.com and sign up to receive your bills electronically. Once you log on to their website, you get three options to choose from:

Out of these three methods, if you choose the last one, i.e. payment through Speedway website, you get additional three options to choose from. These are
- Payment via Debit Card
- Payment via Credit Card
- Payment from Checking Account
Now, if you choose any one of these three options, you require paying an additional fee of $2.00 for residential customers and 3.2% (of total payment
amount) for the commercial customers.
If you don’t want to go through the hassle of paying your bills every month or lets say you tend to forget the payment deadlines, BGE also offers “Auto Pay”. To make automatic payments of your bills every month, all you need to do is to register yourself on BGEasy.com. Once registered, you can easily connect your bank account with your BGEasy account. Every month, the bill amount is directly deducted from your account.
Payment by Phone
To make you BGE payment via phone, call at 1.888.232.0088 and follow the instructions. Phone payment can be made through your credit/debit card and/or checking account. Please note this is a paid service. The charges applied are $2.00 for residential customers and 3.2% of the total billed amount for the commercial users.
Payment in Person
You can pay your bill by providing your account number at the nearby locations of America’s Cash Express and/or Global Express.
Every month, BGE sends a self-addressed envelope along with the bill at your billing address. So, if you want to pay the bill through mail, you can send a check or money order at the mentioned address. Whenever you choose this medium, make sure that you never pay in cash.
Payment via Person Payment Plan
BGE offers Personal Payment plans, through which you can pay one-third of your billing amount and the rest in the form of installments of one to six months.
Apart from these 5 methods, you can also make gift payments for your friends and family. This is a unique and a useful way of brining a smile to the faces of your family and friends. To make gift payments, simply fill out the Gift of Energy form and send it BGE postal address.
